History of Ipil, Zamboanga Sibugay, Philippines
The signing of Executive Order No. 249 on July 26, 1949 by the late President, His Excellency Elpidio Quirino, marked a very significant day for this municipality. It was by virtue of this Presidential Act that Ipil, which was originally only a sitio of Barrio Bacalan of the former district of Kabasalan, was officially created and made a full-fledge local government unit.
When it was created, Ipil was composed of Barrios Bacalan, Titay, Liguisan, Tungawan, Bancaan, and sitios of Tupilak and Dawet; and also Lumbia, Magdaup, Makilas, Pangi, Poblacion, Taway and Tiayon. Other barrios and sitios were created in 1950s to 1960s, such as: Tigbawang, Tando, Looc, Tigbucay, Upper Tungawan, Tigpalay, Cayamcam, Looc Sioral, Taglibong, Tigbongabong, Langon, Gapas-gapas, Mangalibod, Buhangin, Lalawan, Bangko, Palomok, and Malagandis.
The Honorable Gregorio Dar was the first Mayor of Ipil who got his position by appointment and Honorable Eleno Roble was the Vice Mayor. There were only four councilors, namely: Honorable Salip Toto Hasim, Honorable Habib Ibrahim Alsree, Honorable Antonio Limba and Honorable Inocente Tayo. The first Municipal Secretary was Ildefonso Caburian. Adriano Merjuar was its first elected Mayor in year 1951. The residential house of Mr. and Mrs. Jesus Hitco Siao, located at Bangkerohan, served as the temporary town hall. Then it was transferred to the house of Mr. and Mrs. Jaime Crisologo, which is strategically located near the intersection of the national highways, which is at the center of the town proper.
On May 24, 1960, by virtue of Executive Order No. 395 the two barangays of Ipil, namely: Tungawan and Titay were separated to become two separate municipalities. The barrios and sitios of Tungawan, Tigbawang, Tando, Looc, Tigbucay, Upper Tungawan, Tigpalay, Cayamcam, Looc Sioral, Taglibong, Tigbongabong, Bancaan, Langon, Linguisan, Gapas-gapas, Dawet, Mangalibod, Buhangin and the barrios and sitios of Lalawan, Bangko, Palomok, and Malagandis were enumerated to be part of the new municipalities respectively.
Their first Mayors were:
- Honorable Teodorico Ruflo for Titay and
- Honorable Jose F. Villafuerte for Tungawan.
On the later part of 1960s,
- The barangays of Guituan, Ipil Heights, Veterans Village, Sanito, Suclema, and Timalang were created through Municipal Council Resolution No. 97;
- Barangay Labi, through Municipal Council Resolution No. 106;
- Barangay Lower Taway and Tomitom through Provincial Board Resolution No. 178;
- Barangay Don Andres through Municipal Council Resolution No. 116; *Barangay Tenan through Municipal Council Resolution No. 134;
- Barangays Bangkerohan and Upper Pangi through Municipal Council Resolution No. 163;
- Barangay Lower Ipil Heights through Municipal Council Resolution No. 175;
- and Barangay Buluan through Municipal Council Resolution No. 198.
When the highways finally opened to traffic in 1961, Ipil experienced a very rapid growth of development. It was during this time that the elected Mayor Generoso Sucgang, Sr. constructed and finished the 2-storey concrete Municipal Building. In January 1972, Andres P. Olegario took his oath of office as the Municipal Mayor of Ipil.
On March 16, 1982 by virtue of Batas Pambansa Bilang 183, Surabay and its neighboring barangays, such as: Calula, Casacon, Gango, Katipunan, Kulambugan, Mabini, Magsaysay, New Antique, New Sagay, Siawang, Silingan, Tilasan, and Tupilac were separated from the municipality of Ipil, becoming a new Municipality called R.T.Lim.
Honorable Romeo Billote was appointed as its first Municipal mayor. Because of the People Power of 1986, Mayor Andres P. Olegario and all elective officials in Ipil were replaced by the OICs, so that on June 30, 1986, Dr. Henry de Villa was appointed as the OIC Mayor and ABC President Cleopatra P. Largo was appointed OIC Vice Mayor. OIC COUNCILORS also replaced all the councilors.
In 1988, Atty. Jose Fontanoza won the election to become the Municipal Mayor of Ipil. On June 30, 1992, Francisco Q. Pontanar, newly elected Mayor and Atty. Rey Andre C. Olegario, newly elected Vice mayor, together with the newly elected members of the Sangguniang Bayan took their oath of office in the most solemn and official manner before the Honorable Judge Sergio S. Apostol of the Regional Court at the IPIL GYM.

Natural Resources of Ipil, Zamboanga Sibugay, Philippines
- Protect the environment
It is sad but true that as of the year 2012 the rivers of the Philippines continue to be the #1 Sewer Systems of the Philippines.
Protect & Save the Rivers. Do not let your sewer drain into the river. Your community can be the first to initiate this project.
Build your riverbank protection with a built-in gutter system. Reforest within Ten Years - Guaranteed!
Let us plant more trees in every barangay in the entire Philippines. It does not make any difference if the barangay is urban, partially urban or rural; we need more trees. Trees will prevent erosion, provide oxygen, prevent green house effect, and even a place of business for the shade tree mechanic.
The Philippines is a tropical country and practically anything will grow. The DENR has the planting trees project that goes on every year. Lots of picture taking for the media. Planting trees one by one is the "human" way of doing it. This individual planting of trees is good if done to "line" the roads and highways with trees or along fences or property divisions, or if you have a plantation.
To reforest the nation of the Philippines we have to plant trees the "mother nature" way. Sow the seeds during the rainy season. Go deep into "bald" forests and plant trees by sowing seeds. If there's not enough volunteers to do this, use the military helicopters to fly over the designated areas and sow the seeds.
Guaranteed within a few years, The Philippines will be lush again. >>Read More
We are using our rivers as our sewer system. If you ask a Filipino, "Are the Filipinos a clean people?" The answer is an automatic, "Yes!". However, the Filipinos are suffering from the same disease or attitude as most people do, and that is the "NIMBY" disease or "NIMBY" attitude. (NIMBY) Not In My Back Yard. So it is OK to dump my garbage and sewer there. Not mine! Someone else will take care of it.
This attitude is killing our rivers. Your great-grandparents, grandparents or parents were once proud to tell the stories of how they enjoyed swimming in the river behind your house or nearby. However, you can't say the same or tell the same stories to your kids or grand kids. Why? Because your generation is killing the river.

We have so much water in the Philippines and yet very little to drink.
Instead of relying too much on Diesel fuel and Coal to generate the majority of Philippine's Electrical energy Supply, we can concentrate more on renewable and sustainable source of energy such as: Hydro Power, Solar Power, and Wind Power. We have too many black outs.
