To the maker of this blog, please edit the "registration fee - P 5,000" part because that is erroneous. To the readers of this page, pls. call the Office of the City Assessor at 259-1099 or 411-0100 loc. 1401-1404 and Look for Ms. Leizl C. Gonzaga, Ass't. City Assessor, so that you will be guided on your queries accordingly, thanks.
