The City Government has a new City Assessor.
Mayor Rody Duterte appointed lawyer Cesar Dataya to the post on November 29, 2007 replacing lawyer Edelito Domingo who passed away last October 9, 2007.
A Maguindanao Muslim who studied and worked in Davao, Dataya previously served as Legal Officer V and City Housing Officer of the city government.
Mayor Duterte made another first. Dataya is the first Muslim to be appointed as City Assessor and as a Department Head II in the city government.
His appointment comes at a time when the City Council is reviewing the Market Values of Real Properties in the city. He would eventually lead in implementing revisions to this Ordinance.
As chair of the City Council Committee on Appointments & Reorganization, I prepared a concurrence Resolution for today’s City Council session.
