THE QUEZON City government has set up a multi-department committee to oversee the management of its real estate properties, lead activities relating to the acquisition of sites for public projects, and the forfeiture of real properties that are tax delinquent. The Real Estate Management and Coordinating and Monitoring Committee (REMCMC), created through Mayor Herbert M. Bautista’s Executive Order (EO) 9-2018, is headed by the city administrator. “There is a need to clearly identify the necessary and primary activities and tasks for the effective and efficient control and management of the real properties owned by the City Government to ensure that the concerned departments and offices properly and timely undertake their mandated functions, duties, and responsibilities,” the EO reads. In a statement, the QC government said the REMCMC will also be in charge of “establishing possession and control of real properties owned by the city and exercising dominion over the same,” and utilization and disposition of properties for revenue generation and other public purposes.
