GENERAL FEATURES

The Municipality of Leganes is one of the nineteen (19) coastal towns of the Province of Iloilo. It is the only coastal municipality that shares a common border with Iloilo City, which is the provincial capital and regional administration center of Western Visayas in Region VI. It is located along the Guimaras Strait, opposite the town of Buenavista (which is only about 4.5 kilometers from Leganes shoreline) in the island Province of Guimaras. It is adjacent to the City of Iloilo in the South, bounded by Pavia in the Southeast, Sta. Barbara in the West and Zarraga in the North. It is eleven (11) kilometers from the Poblacion of Pavia and approximately five (5) kilometers from the Poblacion of Zarraga. Leganes can be found between the coordinates of 1220 3935 west to 1220 3945 east latitude and between 100 5148 north to 100 4515 south longitude. B. Land Area Leganes has a total land area of 3,220 hectares. It ranks as the third smallest town of the forty two (42) municipalities and one (1) component city of the province of Iloilo. The smallest town is San Miguel with an area of 2,134 hectares. The second smallest municipality is Estancia which has a land area of 3,197 hectares. It is smaller than Leganes by only 23 hectares. The Poblacion of Leganes has a total land area of 58.9196 hectares. C. Topography Well-cultivated fields, coconut trees and bamboo clumps dominate the landscape of the entire municipality. The terrain is characterized by level plains but slightly higher in the northwest of Lapayon and Calaboa with a slope not exceeding 3%. The plains are of prime agricultural lands that produce rice, which is the municipalitys prime commodity. The areas along the coastline are swampy and a large portion of these swampy areas had been converted into fishponds and salt-beds. D. Soil Type The soil of Leganes is classified by the Bureau of Soils in two categories: soil of swamps and marshes and soil of the lowlands and plains. The lowland plain soil is of Sta. Rita clay loam variety, which covers 75% of Leganes or 2,415.5 hectares of land. The swamps and marsh land is of Umingan fine sandy loam type which covers 25% or 804.5 hectares. This type of soil can be found in portions of Barangay Cari Mayor, Cari Minor, Nabitasan, Gua-an, Napnud and MV Hechanova. There is no forest area in Leganes.

E. Water Sources Leganes sources of Level III potable water are the deep wells in the barangays of Guihaman and Cagamutan Sur. The municipality has adequate underground water supply, which can be tapped for domestic and commercial uses. The surface water in Calaboa Creek, Carismo-an Creek and Janipa-an River are utilized for irrigation purposes. F. Drainage and Flood Prone Areas Buntatala and Janipa-an Rivers serve as the main natural drainage to the sea. Janipa-an River winds from Calaboa to Cagamutan Norte to Cari Mayor where it merges with Buntatala River then to the Jalaur River that empties into the Iloilo Strait. Buntatala River traverses the barangays of Buntatala, Guintas, Napnud, Guinobatan, Gua-an, Cari Minor, Cari Mayor and Nabitasan where it merges with Janipa-an and Jalaur Rivers at the boundary of barangays Cari Mayor and Nabitasan. The two rivers (Buntatala and Janipa-an) had ceased to be effective natural water drainage since their course have been narrowed and obstructed by nipa clumps, vegetable growth, floating logs, debris, rubbish and indiscriminate construction of fishpond dikes along both banks of the rivers. These obstructions have created bottlenecks that force back water during continuous rain and spill-off towards the low-lying residential and agricultural areas of the municipality. Tributaries of Janipa-an and Buntatala Rivers traversing the swamp lands to the sea are no longer visible having been converted into fishponds. The canals and natural outlets of water are fast disappearing due to the rapid pace of development. Manmade structures have contributed to the declining situation of the natural drainage. G. Climate Pattern Leganes has two distinct seasons wet and dry. The wet season is from July to November and the dry season is from December to June. It is cold is the months of December, January and February and usually hot during the summer months of March, April and May. There is a slight difference in the weather condition in the barangays along the coast compared to the non-coastal barangays as the former barangays are more humid due to their proximity to the sea. H. Accessibility Leganes is only about 11 kilometers from Iloilo City and about 13 kilometers from the Iloilo Airport through the provincial access road. It can be reached from Iloilo City through the National Highway to the North or the Coastal Highway to the Municipality of Dumangas. The Coastal Road serves as the shorter link of the town to the International Port in Bo. Obrero, Lapuz, Iloilo City and to some of the municipalities

in the North. There are also barangay roads that connect the municipality to the adjacent towns like Sta. Barbara and Pavia. I. Political Subdivision Table 1.

Annex A HISTORY OF LEGANES The Municipality of Leganes sprang from a small settlement in the early part of 1840 in the site now known as Barangay Guihaman. The word guihaman originated from the presence of wild boars or guiham which inhabited the place. The early founders of the municipality named the place Valencia, a town in Spain whose patron saint is San Vicente Ferrer. Learning the existence of the settlement, Don Isidro A. Brudit, the Spanish Governor of Iloilo decreed in 1856, that the settlement be registered as a pueblo otherwise a fine of P600 will be levied upon the inhabitants. In compliance to the decree, the place was registered as pueblo in 1858. The little pueblo at the time had grown into a thriving community with the influx of settlers from the adjacent towns of Jaro and Sta. Barbara. One of its founders, Don Miguel Valencia, seemed to enjoy unmerited, if not unusual honor after the settlement was named Valencia. The other founders moved to have the name changed through a petition to the Alta Mar in Spain. The Spanish authorities, annoyed by the complaint, named the pueblo Leganes---after a town in Spain which is of little significance, just to settle the seemingly heedless dispute. The other originators, Don Angel Gustilo, Don Mariano Gustilo, Don Jacinto Sandoval, Don Lorenzo Gustilo, Don Juan Hilado and Don Fulgencio Espino fought hard for the autonomy and independence of the little pueblo. After having been administered by Kapitanes from 1860 up to the close of the Spanish rule in 1899 the town under the American regime appointed its first president, Zacarias Jaen who reigned from 1900 to 1902. He was succeeded by Tomas Gustilo who headed the pueblo from 1902 to 1904. Because of slow progress and lack of harmony among leaders, the pueblo was annexed as an arrabal of Sta. Barbara by order of Governor Martin Delgado in 1905. Leaders like Councilor Tomas Gustilo and Mariano Jagunap who represented the pueblo from 1907-1908 and Arsenio Guillergan together with Eugenio Maraon from 1914-1915 gave their best in working for the autonomy of infrastructure projects like building of school houses, police station, wells, roads, etc.. They also put up a fight in transferring the revenues of Leganes fishpond from Sta. Barbara to the town treasury of Leganes. With the aid of Jaro councilors Petronilo Gumban and Valentin Jordan, the fishpond revenue was eventually moved from Sta. Barbara to Leganes. This was used in the improvement of roads around the plaza and telephone connections to Jaro. Through the efforts of then Jaro President Petronilo Gumban and his successor Valentin Jordan, Leganes was transferred as an arrabal of Jaro on January 1, 1916. Under these two successive presidents of Jaro who were in sympathy with the cause of the Leganesnons, the arrabal progressed steadily. Philanthropic landowners, notably Florencio S. Jagunap and Melencio Espinosa donated lots for school sites on which the school buildings of Leganes Primary School (now Leganes Elementary School) were constructed.

The Sta. Barbara Irrigation System was constructed in 1919 and was completed on July 4, 1922. A monument for Dr. Jose Rizal was erected in the school site of Leganes Primary School and completed on October 21, 1927 from funds raised by the people and donations from the wealthy family of spouses Modesto Jinon and Capitana Anding Espino. A concrete Gabaldon type school building was built and finished in 1929 from Insular funds through the efforts of Assemblyman Vicente Ybiernas. A new era of peace and progress began when Leganes finally gained its autonomy from Jaro and became a full pledge town through the efforts of the late Congressman Tomas Confesor, then Governor of Iloilo Province. Leganes was created a Municipality pursuant to Executive Order No. 241 of then Commonwealth President Manuel Luis Quezon on January 1, 1940. Marcos Espino was appointed mayor; Martin Jaen as vice mayor, while Constantino Gulmatico, Vicente Guinalon, Severino Quidato, Simplicio Grio, Primitivo Gustilo and Marcial Jacildo were appointed councilors. Their tenure of office lasted only for one year because of the election that followed in November, 1940. In that election, the following candidates were elected: mayor-Marcos Espino; vice mayor-Marcial Jacildo. For councilors: Felix Trespeces, Primitivo Gustilo, Simplicio Grio, Valencia Solinap, and Fausto Espinosa. The emergence of a new town tuned in the era of peace. The peoples consciousness as to where their taxes go, was answered to some degree by continuous town development. They became aware that the money they paid for the taxes returned to them in the form of public improvements. The year 1940 marked the start of progress and infrastructure developments. First mayor, Marcos Espino (1914-1915) had to his credit the promotion of goodwill among the people and was starting to implement his plans for the improvement of the municipality when the Second World War broke out. The Japanese Imperial Forces landed in Panay on April 16, 1942 on the shores of Oton. Mayor Espino assumed his function as leader of the local Civil Resistance Movement in the marshland of Cari Mayor at the junction of Janipa-an and Buntatala Rivers. Life during the Japanese Occupations became critical. People were always in the state of fear due to the series of battles and ambuscades between local guerillas and Japanese forces. The civilians evacuated to safe places, others fled to the mountains. The peoples fears were abated when Delfin Guinalon was made the puppet mayor of the town in compliance with the Japanese Propaganda Movements of Co-Prosperity Sphere for the whole Asia. Through his coordination with the Japanese Kempetais who turned the old municipal building into a Japanese garrison, many lives were saved. The reign of Guinalon ended when the 40th Infantry Division of the US 8th Army Division forces landed in Parara Beach, Tigbauan, Iloilo on March 18, 1945 to liberate the Island of Panay. When the war ended, the town of Leganes painstakingly rehabilitated the damage brought about by the Japanese Imperial Army. Right after the liberation, Martin Jaen was appointed mayor in 1945-1946, and was elected as town mayor up to 1951. In spite of limited funds, he was able to put up a

number of public work improvements. Mayor Jaens successor, Pablo Jinon (1952-1955), took the advantage of using the funds from Congressman Espinosas pork barrel in implementing the construction of Leganes municipal building. The election of Mayor Esperidion J. Jagunap in 1956-1959 and his reelection in 1960-1963, ushered another era of progress in the history of Leganes. In the years that followed, the town was transformed into a beautiful municipality. In the local election of 1963, the people of Leganes voted into office a young lawyer and neophyte politician (considered the youngest elected mayor in the Visayas Region), Atty. Adolfo E. Jaen, who expanded the development programs of the municipality. During his term, he became active in the scouting movement that placed Leganes on top of other municipalities in the whole council of Iloilo. The Leganes Barangay High School (now Leganes National High School) was opened in the school year 1966-67. Mr. Jorge P. Landoy, Principal of the Leganes Elementary School, was the first Assistant Principal of the said Municipal High School. The school successfully had its first batch of graduates in 1969 and continued to enroll more students every year. In the election of 1967, the mandate of the people gave the incumbent Mayor Jaen his second term. The University of the Philippines and the National Science Development Board (NSDB) was granted the use of the portion of Leganes Fishponds for the establishment of the UPV Brackishwater Aquaculture Center. In the following years, high schools were established in other barangays. Nabitasan Barangay High School was opened at the start of the school year 1970-71, and Lapayon Barangay High School in 1979 with Mrs. Dorotea Gaverza and Miss Rosalina Berguia, Principal and Assistant Principal respectively. In the election of 1971, after a respite of 8 years, Mayor Esperidion J. Jagunap (1972-75) was again voted to administer the municipality. The Southeast Asia Fisheries Development Center (SEAFDEC), Aquaculture Department, a well know institution in fishery technology was granted the use of a large portion of the Leganes Fishpond for research. During that time, there was an upsurge in the implementation of vital infrastructure projects. Under the New Society Program of the late President Ferdinand E. Marcos, Leganes became famous for the implementation of its New Society Nutrition Program. Infrastructure program was implemented in full swing. Selected schools in the western side of the municipality were recipients of the Bagong Lipunan Building. The Leganes Central School was renovated into a two storey-building composed of 10 rooms replacing the 10 rooms semi-permanent intermediate building. A three (3)- room building was added to Lapayon Barangay High School. Another three (3)-room building was construction in Lapayon Elementary School.

When Martial Law was lifted in January, 1980, a local election was held. Two strong contending parties were vying for leadership in the Municipality of Leganes. The KBL under the leadership of incumbent Mayor Jagunap, and the Nacionalista Party under the leadership of Mayor Adolfo E. Jaen. Mayor Adolfo E. Jaen won and officially assumed his post as town Mayor. Mayor Adolfo E. Jaen regained the goodwill and cooperation of the people through project implementation. The conversion of Leganes Municipal High School to Leganes National High School was approved by authorities concerned giving additional benefits to the school and its faculty, the construction of 1.4 million BLISS housing project in Cari Mayor gave added improvement to the barangay. Leganes continued to progress because of the trilateral interaction and cooperation between the school, the church, and the local government. In 1986, when President Corazon C. Aquino assumed power, there was a reorganization in all government posts. In 1987, the term of local chief executives expired under the old constitution. The National Government then appointed Josil P. Jaen as Officer-in-Charge (OIC) to manage local affairs. He succeeded his uncle, Mayor Adolfo Jaen, to become the sixth mayor of the Municipality of Leganes. After his term as an OIC, Josil P. Jaen ran for mayor and won in the 1989, 1992, and 1995 election. Serving the Leganesnons for twelve straight years, he was able to transform the municipality into one of the most developed towns in Iloilo, with fast growing economy in the province. This success, anchored in his program of government that gave emphasis on peoples empowerment through participative approach, became the foundation of all development strategies and projects implemented. Mayor Josil P. Jaen also visualized Leganes to become an Industrial Growth Center in the province. Additional infrastructure development projects were implemented not only in the Poblacion but almost in the entire municipality. Efforts to invite investors were also prioritized leading to the gradual realization of this vision. Apparently, all the efforts of Mayor Josil Jaen stemmed from his innate philanthropic character of helping uplift the economic condition of his constituents. The local election of 1998 ushered in an administration of another Jaen, this time the return of Atty. Adolfo E. Jaen. Now a veteran in politics, Mayor Adop has served his kasimanwas since 1963 for a total of three consecutive terms: 1963-68, 1968-71 and 1980-86. Now on his 4th term, Mayor Adop continues the vision of the preceding administration. Also to his credit are the various programs and projects aimed for the advancement and betterment of all Leganesnons. He constructed additional stalls at the second floor of the existing public market structure. Before his term ended, he was also able to facilitate the improvement of San Vicente Road, the Lapayon-CalaboaCagamutan Norte Road, and the 3CL at Leganes National High School. In the May 14, 2001 election, Leganes elected Enrique Rojas as mayor. Among his projects were the rehabilitation of Hilado Street, beautification of the Ecology Park,

conversion of Leganes Rural Health Unit into a Sentrong Sigla, and construction of additional farm to market roads, among others. With his ardor to public service, Mayor Adop again ran for mayor in the May 10, 2004 election. Once again, he captured the trust and love of this kasimanwas, owing to his makamasa image. Now on his fifth (5th) term, Mayor Adop is endeared to his kasimanwas the way he used to be. Among his projects are: construction of a police station building and municipal jail, restoration of the lagoon, cultural support for the Saad Festival:Halad kay San Vicente Ferrer which though its only on its second year, it was already included in the Calendar of Festivals in the Province and was chosen by DOT VI as one of the Province of Iloilos Best Festivals. He also put up of the Leganes Garden Center, reactivation of the Leganes Sports Council and debt reduction. The Leganes Livelihood Resource Center building was constructed and completed in the first quarter of 2005. Mayor Adop also activated linkages with national agencies like the Technical Education Skills Development Authority (TESDA), thus opening the floodgates of valuable livelihood training programs like fish processing, entrepreneurship skills training, candle making and reflexology/shiatsu training for Leganes residents. Partnership with TESDA likewise paved the way for the opening of Leganes School of Fisheries in UPV-Nabitasan, offering scholarship for short-term aquaculture-related courses. partnership with Metro Iloilo Development Council (MIDC) which made possible the implementation of infrastructure projects not only in the municipality but also in other MIDC-member municipalities. To add, with Mayor Jaens leadership, the LGU thru the Municipal Agriculture Office created the Leganes Garden Club and the Leganes Cutflower Association. Aside from these, thru the DA diversified farming was also introduced to farmers to encourage them to plant vegetables and other agricultural products to augment their income. In the Social Services and Health and Nutrition Sector, Milk Feeding Program was established as one of the nutrition programs of the municipality. The beneficiaries of this program are those malnourished children in the different barangays. In addition, more than 5,000 Leganesnons benefited in the free medical mission conducted by the United Airlines American Employees Association thru the leadership of Orfa JaenLagman, the municipal government and the Rotary Club of Iloilo Inc. As part of the LGUs health program, a total of 606 indigent families in the different barangays were enrolled in the PhilHealth insurance. With Mayor Adolfo E. Jaens strong sense of commitment and dedication to public service, many projects would still be realized that would redound to the best interest of his kasimanwas.
