Service Description

The tasks of the municipal supervisory authority are to advise and support the municipalities, offices, cities, districts and special-purpose associations and to ensure the legality of the fulfillment of tasks in matters of self-administration.
The municipal supervisory authority can only take measures against municipalities, offices, cities, districts or special-purpose associations that go beyond providing advice in the event of clear violations of the law.
It may not intervene in matters relating to the expediency of administrative action.
The municipal supervisory complaint does not replace the legal protection provided by federal law and does not serve to enforce the individual interests of individual citizens against the authorities.
