Optimization of Municipalities with Extended Competence Selection
AbstractMunicipalities with extended administration, in which public administration offices are located, were selected within the frame of public administration reform (Act No. 344/1997 Coll., on the Territorial Arrangement of the State and Establishment of Higher Territorial & Administrative Units). These municipalities with extended administration partly substitute the function of district authorities. The selection of municipalities was carried out on the basis of criteria set by the government and political subjects. From the point of view of citizens, the most important criterion for the dislocation of public administration branch offices is the transport availability. Nevertheless, transport availability was not paid relevant attention in the decision making process in question. This fact becomes more and more important in connection with the growing problems related to ensuring regional transport. The paper deals with the creation of a mathematical model of the optimisation of branch offices dislocation and subsequent implementation. The solution of this model has three outputs. The first output is the evaluation of the contemporary state from the point of view of accessibility of branch offices. The second one is the sensibility analysis of accessibility depending on the number of branch offices. The third output is the post-optimisation analysis, which brought about numerical expression of the relationship between the cost of running a branch office and losses due to citizens travelling to municipalities with extended administration.
