Could the recent revived activity at the “New Iloilo City Hall” site be a consequence of the election campaign of certain politicians? More likely so, nonetheless, it’s a welcome development since it has long been a clamor of Ilonggos to have the New City Hall completed after more than a year of delays.

Clearing works have already begun and the perimeter fence put up. Hopefully, actual construction of the multi-storey building will start soon and completed after 18 months, as planned and promised.
