THE Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) gets a new acting chairman, Engineer Carlo Dimayuga III.
His appointment papers were signed by President Ferdinand Marcos, Jr. on August 1 and took his oath of office before Executive Secretary Victor Rodriguez on Wednesday, August 3.
“The MMDA welcomes Engr. Dimayuga as its new Acting Chairman. The agency believes that with his instinctive understanding of operations and managerial perspective, he can steer MMDA towards delivering better basic services to the public,” according to MMDA Flood Control and Sewerage Management Office Director Baltazar Melgar, who was the MMDA’s Officer-in-Charge since July.
Dimayuga passed the Civil Engineer Licensure Examination in 1997 after studying Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering at the University of Sto. Tomas.
He finished both his secondary and primary education at the Lourdes School Quezon City in 1987 and 1991.
He replaced Atty. Romando Artes who was appointed by then-President Rodrigo Duterte last March.
