How Transparent and Informative the web page of Sachkhere Municipality is
Transparency International Georgia continues its research on proactive provision of public information by municipalities. This paper assesses how Sachkhere Municipality fulfills its commitments in this regard.
Our research revealed the following findings:
● On January 20, 2016, Sachkhere Municipality adopted the Resolution #2 that determined the rule how to provide public information proactively;
● The Resolution adopted by Sachkhere Municipality is pursuant to the Government Resolution #219 that sets high standards for proactive provision of public information;
● However, information published on the web page (http://sachkhere.gov.ge) of Mayor’s Office and City Council does not meet the resolution requirements given in the list of public information that should be provided proactively;
● It is noteworthy, that the web page of Sachkhere Municipality is more informative, compared to other municipalities of Imereti. However, the web page does not contain such information as: public procurement and privatization of property; enacted budget and its amendments, budgetary reports, planned sittings of City Council and their agenda, etc.
More specific information published on the web page of Sachkhere Municipality Mayor’s Office and City Council can been seen in infographics:
Transparency International Georgia calls on Sachkhere Municipality Mayor’s Office and City Council to promptly fulfill its commitments prescribed by resolution #2 (adopted on January 20, 2016) and upload comprehensive information on their web page. In addition, for ensuring more transparency it is necessary for Sachkhere Municipality Mayor’s Office and City Council to have two separate web pages and not the joint one.
