Starosta’s participation in the work of the executive committee includes:
The executive committee of the AH council should be perceived and used by the starosta as a service platform for solving not only issues relating to the interests of the residents of the relevant starosta district, but also the amalgamated hromadas as a whole. In this regard, starosta should understand the importance of his/her place and role in solving the issues of ensuring the vital AH activity, as well as importance of starosta’s participation in this process.
