Dubbed as “Kasalan ng Bayan,” Liza Auza, local civil registrar, said that the occasion would be officiated by Mayor Alexander Pimentel.

"It would take place at the lobby of the City Hall," she said.

Over a month ago, the City Civil Registrar’s Office called on and urged “couples” here who had been cohabiting for not less than five years to avail of the offer, saying it would be all for free.  In fact, a public service announcement in this regard had been sent to media outfits, citing thereat specific requirements to be accomplished.
