The Chiatura Municipality Doesn’t Proactively Publish Public Information
TI Georgia continues its research into the proactive publication of public information by municipalities. We present to you the information on how the Chiatura Municipality fulfills the obligation to proactively publish information.
The research has resulted in the following findings:
● On December 29, 2014, the Chiatura Sakrebulo defined through Order N47 the rules for proactive publication of public information;
● The information on the website of the City Hall and Sakrebulo (http://chiatura.org.ge/) does not meet the criteria defined by the list of information to be published proactively;
● The adopted Order is not in line with the Government Order 219, which defines a high standard for the proactive publication of public information;
● The Order N47 of the Chitaura Sakrebulo does not obligate the municipality bodies to release information of high interest to the public, such as: annual report on the activities of the administrative bodies; forms/templates of administrative complaints and information on the rules for complaints; normative acts, which define the rules for holding contests in administrative bodies and its results; information on the finances and accounting of the administrative bodies, including state procurements and state property privatization; protocols of Sakrebulo sessions, petitions, etc.
Refer to the charts for the information that is available on the websites of Chiatura Sakrebulo and City Hall
TI Georgia calls upon the Sakrebulo and City Hall of the Chiatura Municipality to timely fulfill the obligations defined by the Order N47 adopted on December 29, 2014 and publish the required information in its entirety on the official website. TI Georgia also recommends for amendments to be made to Order N47 adopted on December 29, 2014, in order to bring it line with the Government Order N219. Moreover, TI Georgia calls upon the City Hall and Sakrebulo of the Chiatura Municipality to create separate websites.
