TAGUM CITY—Through the earnest effort of Tagum City’s Local Civil Registry Office (LCR), spearheaded by Flordeliza J. Zulueta under the leadership of Mayor Allan L.

The programs offered by the LCR objectify to have a 100% rate of registry in the city.
Mobile Registration, as the banner program of the LCR, travels across the entire city of Tagum to conduct lectures and assessments together with their partners; the Barangay Secretaries, Hospitals and Lying-ins, Schools and Religious leaders to help enhancing the partners through capability building in updating the records of birth and marriage certificates, as well as, refresher for the law and city ordinances for better registry service.
