The Municipality of Santa Maria in Ilocos Sur, home to a UNESCO World Heritage Site, has put into effect its Ordinance No. 33, s. 2019 or the “FOI Ordinance of 2019.”
The town’s policy mandates the municipal government to exercise proactive disclosure of information. It also designates the Human Resource Management Officer to be its FOI focal person. Citizens may make their request by filling out the local government’s standard form and submit it to the concerned office.
