Abstract

The article investigates the features of management in cities with district division. Attention is paid to identifying the main problems of distribution of powers between local governments in cities with regional division and analysis of existing legislation on this issue. It is stated that in the process of decentralization of public power, when organizing management in cities with district division, it is necessary first of all to take into account the interests of residents of the territorial community of the district in the city and to apply a balanced and differentiated approach taking into account the population of the city and its territory, it is advisable to use the principle of subsidiarity.

The purpose of the article is to investigate the features of management in cities with regional division in Ukraine.

Scientific novelty is to investigate and highlight the specificities of governance in cities with regional division in Ukraine, as well as to formulate specific proposals and recommendations for the elimination of problematic issues related to governance in these cities.

Conclusions. Issues of effective organization of management in cities with regional division should be resolved in accordance with the processes of decentralization of public power, taking into account the principle of subsidiarity, as well as the maximum approximation of social services of public authorities to the population in the relevant territory, which in addition to the national legislation is also provided by European Local Government Charter. The implementation of the principle of subsidiarity in the distribution of powers between local governments in cities with regional division will make it possible to manage at different levels of government most effectively. The solution to the problem of the proper organization of management in the cities with the district division needs the most urgent regulation at the legislative level, and can be solved, both within the Constitution of Ukraine and the Law of Ukraine «On Local Self-Government of Ukraine», by amending them accordingly, as well as the adoption of a set of new legal acts, first of all, the Law of Ukraine «On the administrative and territorial structure of Ukraine», the Law of Ukraine «On the territorial community», the Law of Ukraine «On urban agglomerations and city satellite» and others. In our view, it would be very successful to resolve this issue by adopting the Law of Ukraine «On Local Referendum», which would democratically resolve the issue of governance in cities with district division, where the population of the respective district as an independent element of the administrative and territorial structure of Ukraine in in accordance with their constitutional rights to participate in local issues, they would choose their own model of governance, which brings Ukraine closer to European standards of local government and self-government.
