More than the usual flag raising ceremony last January 17, 2017, it was announced before a fervent crowd that incoming Atty. Marlou P. Alutaya will be the new OIC-Chief of the Bureau’s Legal Division, with outgoing chief Atty. Norlito Eneran designated as OIC-Director of Legal Service of the DENR, in compliance with DENR Special Order Nos. 2017 – 01 and 2017 – 02.
In his farewell speech, Atty. Norlito A. Eneran expressed his gratitude for becoming a part of the Bureau family despite only being in the position for one year and a half. Atty. Alutaya, the previous Chief of the Licenses, Patents and Deeds Division (LPDD), Region IV-CALABARZON vowed to continue the exemplary performance of the Legal Division at the start of the year.
