We envision Dalaguete as a globally-competitive growth center and relevant tourism destination, the leading agricultural producer and ecotourism destination in the Province of Cebu and a healthy, value-oriented, empowered, environment-friendly, law-abiding and God-loving society.

It is our two-fold mission to (a) pro-actively deliver responsive, cost-effective and innovative local government infrastructures and services within the context of well-sustained, ecologically-sensitive, and equity-driven development, and (b) economically empower our people through provision of equitable and inclusive opportunities to secure jobs and sustainable income.

The ultimate goal of the Municipality of Dalaguete is to improve the quality of life of the people through:

  • The development of program and continuing education and to encourage active participation in local governance in support to the development thrusts of the municipal government;
  • The promotion of partnership and reinforcement in the delivery of basic and support services (basic education both formal and non-formal, peace and order; custodial and protective services) with the local government units at the provincial, municipal and barangay level or governance;
  • The provision of legislative and policy support to the executive agenda;
  • The increase of its internal and external financial resources and effectively exercise its governmental functions in order to effectively deliver basic and other support services.
