A Proactive Perspective on Reform in Local Public Administration

Petru Filip

Abstract. The local communities from Romania and those from Eastern Europe have become important public services suppliers carried out in the interest of their citizens. Public services such as pre-university education system, culture, assistance and social protection, but also public lightening, water supply, and sewerage are examples of services which are assured by the public local authorities. Consequent to the principles published in the European Charter of the Local Autonomy, the local authorities had fully benefited from the provisions of the Chart. The right to dispose by own resources, the right to collect them, the right to benefit by partition of tax incomes, the right to contract loans have transformed the local communities in important entities with financial power capable to carry out efficient public services in terms of quality and operational for the citizens. Which is the financial and decisional mechanism for functioning of the local communities? These are some questions for which we tried to formulate an answer within this present work beside the research of the main reform elements implemented in the European Romania.

Keywords: local communities; reform of local public administration; locale public authorities; public services; financial mechanism of functioning; decisional mechanism of functioning.
