Commissions of local government’s decision-making and control bodies

From Encyklopedia Administracji Publicznej

COMMISSIONS OF LOCAL GOVERNMENT’S DECISION-MAKING AND CONTROL BODIES – internal bodies of the municipality/county council and voivodship sejmik, of an auxiliary character. It is the council/sejmik of a given unit that decides about the advisability of appointing a c. and at the same time decides on the subject of activity and the membership. The appointed c. may be permanent – acting throughout the term of office of the council/sejmik and ad hoc – for the purpose of solving specific tasks, going beyond the scope of permanent commission’s activities. The c. consists only of councillors (representatives of all council clubs), with the exception of councillors who are the chairman or deputy chairmen of the council/sejmik. An → audit committee has a special status – the only one appointed obligatorily, which gives opinions on the implementation of the budget and performs audits commissioned by the council/sejmik [ P.
