Bogo, officially the City of Bogo (Cebuano: Dakbayan sa Bogo; Tagalog: Lungsod ng Bogo), is a 6th class component city in the province of Cebu, Philippines. According to the 2015 census, it has a population of 78,120 people. [3]

The plebiscite for the cityhood of Bogo was held on 16 June 2007 in which 97.82% of voters of Bogo voted for cityhood. Former representative Clavel Asas-Martinez announced that the cityhood of Bogo has been ratified. It became the sixth component city of Cebu province.[5]

Government center[edit]

The new Bogo City Hall was inaugurated on 19 April 2013 by President Benigno Aquino III.[6] Later that year, on 8 November, a powerful super typhoon Yolanda,[7][8] also known as Typhoon Haiyan, badly hit northern Cebu, where Bogo City is located, and the city was not spared in the ensuing widespread devastation. Typhoon Yolanda destroyed almost everything from infrastructure to agriculture, with 90% of the populace left homeless, plus thirteen local fatalities among the National death toll of more than 6,000. City Hall was one of the structures damaged: its roof got ripped off, many windows were broken, and other parts of the building were badly damaged.[9]

Cityhood[edit]

On June 16, 2007, the municipality Bogo becomes a city in the province of Cebu after ratification of Republic Act 9390.

The Supreme Court declared the cityhood law of Bogo and 15 other cities unconstitutional after a petition filed by the League of the Cities of the Philippines in its ruling on November 18, 2008. On December 22, 2009, the cityhood law of Bogo and 15 other municipalities regain its status as cities again after the Supreme Court reversed its ruling on November 18, 2008. On August 23, 2010, the Supreme Court reinstated its ruling on November 18, 2008 causing Bogo and 15 cities to become regular municipalities. Finally, on February 15, 2011, Bogo becomes a city again including the 15 municipalities declaring that the conversion to cityhood met all legal requirements.

After six years of legal battle, in its board resolution, the League of the Cities of the Philippines acknowledged and recognized the cityhood of Bogo and 15 other cities.

Geography[edit]

Bogo City is located in the northeastern coast of Cebu province, on the principal island of Cebu. It is 101 kilometres (63 mi) from Cebu City and is accessible by land and sea.
