December 7, 2010 7:34am

December 8, Wednesday, will be a special non-working day in Taguig City, Malacañang said.

By the authority of President Benigno Aquino III, Executive Secretary Paquito Ochoa Jr. signed Proclamation 81, noting the date marks the cityhood anniversary of Taguig.

"(To) enable the people of the city of Taguig to celebrate the occasion, it is but fitting and proper to declare December 8, 2010, as a special non-working day," Ochoa said in the proclamation.

The proclamation was dated December 1 but posted only Monday night on the Official Gazette website.

Formerly a fishing community along Laguna de Bay, Taguig has become a significant residential, commercial and industrial center in Metro Manila. — LBG, GMANews.TV
