The Municipality of Consolacion used to be a component barangay, providing much of the labour requirements of the big city. Consolacion became a separate town in 1871. However, in 1902 and 1903, unable to maintain her status as an independent municipality, she again became a part of Mandaue.
Finally in 1920, Consolacion was again made an independent municipality after a petition for it's restoration into a separate town, was granted by the governor. Today, Consolacion is a robust residential urban municipality with a vigourous economy , providing a place to live for staff employed in the neighbouring cities of Mandaue, Lapu-Lapu and Cebu.

Consolacion, centrally located North of Cebu City, is often visited by distinguished callers and visitors. In the last three years, we hosted a number of official visits; many, including foreigners, have been persuaded that Consolacion is the better place to settle.
Especially retired Cebuanos from the United States would be attracted to a municipality like Consolacion for their final golden years back home, enjoying the peaceful rural hills surrounding them and sharing the fruits of a long and often hard life overseas with deserving folks at home.
The Mayor supports the speeding up of the title-issuing process, enabling capital and bank-lending to flow into the rural barangays.
Above all, the Mayor is a great believer in the need for cleanliness in his Municipality and has organized on-going seminars to educate the people on proper garbage disposal.
