Dumaguete City Government Offices

The City Hall of Dumaguete is located between Quezon Park and Rizal Boulevard. The space at this location is limited. Therefore many Government Offices are in other buildings throughout the city. The DC-Team run many times against walls when looking for contacts and locations of the offices in Dumaguete. Many available info were outdated or incomplete without phone numbers, names or the appropriate location. We visited many of the Offices in Dumaguete over the last weeks and put together a list of Dumaguete City Government Offices including their location, duties, contact numbers and the Head of Office. This list might not be complete but is the most up-to-date and comprehensive list available (updated September 15, 2021)
