Governor Amado I. Espino III has designated Assistant Provincial Assessor Loida Q. Alamar as the new Officer-in-Charge of the Provincial Assessment Office.
The designation was formalized through the issuance of Administrative Order No. 2019-0030 which the provincial chief executive signed on August 6.
Grateful of the trust and confidence given her, Alamar disclosed she owe the said post to Gov. Espino and Provincial Legal Officer Geraldine U. Baniqued, who served as the OIC for almost three years since Mr. Nestor Quiambao, the former provincial assessment officer, retired from government service.
The new PAssO OIC has been serving the provincial government for 35 years now in which she disclosed that the said institution is her first employer. “I am very sincere and passionate with my work. The reason of my long years of stay here is not only for the love of the institution but for the love of my roots,” Alamar stated.
Alamar finished her Accountancy degree at the University of Baguio in 1984 and earned 45 masteral units in Public Administration at the Lyceum Northwestern University in Dagupan City in the years 1999 to 2000.
“I rose from the ranks,” she said noting that she first became a clerk and was promoted as local assessment officer in the preceding years of service before becoming an assistant provincial assessment officer.
As such, the new PAssO OIC will be directly supervising three divisions of the office which has a total of 54 plantilla positions where 44 are filled up, three casuals and four job orders.
The provincial assessment office, as mandated by the Local Government Code, takes charge in the administration, appraisal, assessment levy and collection of real property tax.
