Topical issues of transparency in implementing public control in municipalentities

Objective: to investigate the mechanisms of citizens and public institutions participation in public control in the municipalities. According to the author, the monitoring process should involve the greatest possible range of subjects, and the controlling measures are to be taken in a transparent and open manner. Therefore, forms of citizen participation in public control should be investigated from the standpoint of the principle of openness of local government.

Methods: the universal dialectic method, which was applied to the analysis of norms of the Federal law "On fundamentals of public control in the Russian Federation", which is the legal base for the implementation of the institution of public control. When studying the problem of adequate legal regulation of the control institution, the formal legal method was also used. Other methods were used for evaluation of the acquired knowledge, in particular, comparative legal and systemic-structural methods.

Results: on the basis of legal norms analysis, based on the legal nature of the local government institution as the level of public authorities, which is closest to the citizens, the conclusion was made about the lack of legal regulation relating to the public control subjects in municipalities. The numerous public organizations operating in local communities were not fixed by legislative norms as subjects of public control.

Scientific novelty: the author has grounded the proposals for amending the abovementioned Federal law, the legislation of Federation subjects, and the municipal regulations by adding a number of new subjects of public control inherent to the municipal level.

Practical value: the conclusions and suggestions, formulated in the study, will contribute to the active implementation of public control in the municipalities, will enhance the ability of citizens and civil society institutions to monitor the authorities, and will have a positive impact on transparency of local self-government. The results of the study can be used in law-making and law-enforcement practice, research, and educational process.
