Even on the love front, the city government makes sure that Tacurongnon couples get to live a legally married life, for free.
On Valentine’s Day, City Mayor Angelo O. Montilla served as a solemnizing officer to 14 couples for the Kasalan ng Bayan sa Araw ng mga Puso 2020. The ceremony took place at the Tacurong City Cultural and Sports Center.
City Vice Mayor Lino O. Montilla and members of the Sangguniang Panlungsod served as sponsors although the couples were allowed to invite sponsors of their choice.
The free wedding meant that the city government shouldered the couples’ CENOMAR, marriage license, and notarial fees.
On the wedding day, each couple was provided with a framed wedding picture, a cake, and giveaways.
A wedding banquet was also held for the couples, their sponsors, families, and guests. A live band also serenaded the occasion.
This Kasalan ng Bayan was facilitated by the City Registrar’s Office headed by Ms. Josephine Balino. The couples were residents of Tacurong City and have lived together as husband and wife for 5 years or more without any legal impediments.
