The local administration anchors its development and public management strategies on total and sustainable human development. Consistent with the vision of the municipality and provincial, regional and national policies and plans, the local government unit practices the comprehensive and integrated area development approach considering the human person as the very core of all development interventions reinforced by enhancing the quality of life support systems.

The local government pursues social and economic development programs guided by the principles of justness, responsiveness, efficiency, accountability, transparency and sustainability. Cooperation of different sectors is encouraged and practiced at all levels and phases of local public management.
