The reason for the existence of local authorities is clear. To meet the requirements, they need political leadership, programs that address the needs of the community and the administration to make it happen. In this article we will look at primarily the administration which is the engine room of any organisation. The administration involves governance, service delivery, financial management and the staff to carry out these tasks. In all of these aspects, municipalities face the gruelling responsibility that the tasks need to be carried out not just in accordance with the letter of the legislation that governs the operation of municipalities but also efficiently and within the spirit of the law.
