Bohol holiday on July 1, Tagbilaran City Charter Day

Tagbilaran City (30 June) -- Workers in Tagbilaran City pause from work Wednesday, July 1, a day declared as the city Charter Day.

July 1 is a non-working special public holiday here, by virtue of Republic Act 8267.

The day would be the city's 43rd anniversary since it gained its charter July 1, 1966.

The city came from humble beginnings as part of the old town Baclayon and was then called San Jose de Tagbilaran since February 9, 1742 by virtue of a decree by Spanish Governor General Gaspar dela Torre.

On July 1, 1966 by virtue of R.A. 4660, Tagbilaran became a chartered City and the corresponding holiday came about with RA 8267.

As a chartered city, Tagbilaran was established by a Congressional act and is governed by its own charter.

Its leaders exact powers from the charter and does not look up to the provincial, regional or national laws. (PIA) [top]
