The City of Imus is the de facto capital of the Province of Cavite. Under the Recollects, it became an independent municipality in 1975. In October 2009, Republic Act 9727 reapportioned Cavite into seven districts making Imus the Third Legislative District. On 12 April 2012, Republic Act 10161 was enacted into law, converting the Municipality of Imus into a City. The people of Imus ratified this later on through a plebiscite on 30 June 2012. The city's rich history is evident in its various heritage sites--the Imus Cathedral, Imus City Plaza, and Imus Heritage Site. It was also the site of two momentous Katipunero victories during the Philippine Revolution against Spain--The Battle of Imus and the Battle of Alapan, where the first Philippine flag was unfurled and raised, making Imus the "Flag Capital of the Philippines".
The model city in the region, with secured and healthy citizenry, living in a smart, green and sustainable environment in a technology-driven economy, governed with integrity and transparency.
The City Government of Imus is committed to delivering a transparent, reliable, and efficient public service that is proactive to the needs of its people while actively pursuing development for a dynamic and unified Imus.
