How transparent and complete is the website of the Ambrolauri Municipality?
TI Georgia continues to conduct a study on the proactive publication of public information by municipalities. This time we present information on whether the Ambrolauri Municipality fulfills the said obligation.
We have revealed the following circumstances as a result of the study:
- By ordinance No. 25 adopted on November 30, 2017, the Town Council of the Ambrolauri Municipality established the procedure of proactive publication of public information;
- The ordinance is in line with the requirements of Ordinance No. 219 of the Government of Georgia, which establishes a high standard of proactive publication of public information;
- The information published on the common website of the Town Hall and Town Council (http://ambrolauri.gov.ge) fails to match the list of information to be published proactively under the ordinance;
- In addition, the search engine on the website of the Town Hall and Town Council is difficult to use, which hinders access to public information.
See detailed data on the types of information published on the common website of the Town Council and Town Hall of the Ambrolauri Municipality in the tables below:
TI Georgia calls upon the Town Hall and Town Council of the Ambrolauri Municipality to eliminate the said problems in a timely manner, to fulfill the obligation taken by Ordinance No. 25 of November 30, 2017, and to ensure that the information is uploaded fully to the official website. The organization also recommends that the Town Hall and Town Council of the Ambrolauri Municipality create separate websites to ensure more transparency.
