About Isabelo Zorilla Echavez

Quoting from the Dipolog website: "In 1912, US General John Pershing granted the petition seeking the conversion of Dipolog into a regular town on condition that an administrative building be constructed within six months and an elaborate inauguration arrangements be made. Two of the enclaves’ prominent residents and influential members of the Centro Catolico de Dipolog, Isabelo Echavez and Eleoterio Barinaga volunteered to raise PHP3,000.00 and mobilize the needed materials for the project. With the help of the association’s members and clergy, gangs of carpenters, lumberjacks and bricklayers from the nearby provinces of Negros, Cebu and Bohol were organized and a tight construction schedule was laid out.

"On a full moon on a Holy Saturday in 1913, Fr. Gaudencio Bendijo conducted the cornerstone laying ceremony while a brass band played the Marcha Real. The first Molave post was erected on the very spot where the main City Hall stands today, and the work gangs supervised by Engineer- Architect Francisco Garcia, Roman Catholic Curate of Dipolog wrapped up the construction in three months. The building tailored to the Western taste of elegance had concrete for foundation and ground flooring with space more than enough for four offices, two storerooms and a jail. The second floor, with social hall at its center, housed six executive offices.

Ten years later, Lolo Beloy (as he was lovingly called) held the post of Municipal Administrator (1922-1925), equivalent to Municipal Mayor and his portrait hangs in Dipolog's City Hall along with a long line of illustrious forefathers.
