According to the Law on Capital City, the township (City District) of Golubovci is established as a unit of local self-government within the Capital Podgorica, to: a) ensure better conditions for efficient and effective community level performance; and to b) enable improved citizens participation at the level of the Capital City.
The new organizational setup of the former municipality Podgorica aims at decentralization of powers of the local self-governments, improved citizens participation, enhanced efficiency of financial management and better-quality provision of social, health, education and other services that support community life and respond to beneficiaries’ needs.
