Service Description

The full-time mayor is – in addition to the municipal council or city council – an organ of the municipality.

In independent cities and in large cities belonging to the district, the main statutes may provide for the official title "Lord Mayor" for the Mayor or "Lord Mayor" for the Mayor.

In full-time administered municipalities, his or her duties include, among other things:

  • the management of the administration,
  • to enforce the laws,
  • prepare and implement the decisions of the municipal council and the committees, and
  • report regularly to the Main Committee on the implementation of the decisions,
  • to take the decisions that the municipal council has delegated to him or her,
  • legal representation and
  • the drafting of statutes.

He or she is the highest service authority and the superior or superior of the employees of the municipality.

In voluntarily administered municipalities with over 4000 to 8000 inhabitants, the municipal council may decide that a full-time mayor is elected; as with all other voluntary municipalities, the administrative business is carried out by the office or by the municipality used by the municipality.
