Changes in the role of the state and the definition of the concept of good governance have represented important achievements in public administration in the era following the millennium. The local governments appear in several segments of the report. Another important element of the concept of good governance besides the operation of public administration involves ensuring public safety and on the local level local governments may also be a part of this. The issue of the regulation of peaceful public coexistence might be associated most with democracy due to the disputed nature of the legal stipulations also affecting fundamental rights. At the same time, this subject area represents a field of initiatives by the ombudsman, and it is almost certain that ex post normative review and constitutional complaints can also be expected in this case type. Norms regulating peaceful public coexistence represent a separate subject area as in many cases they wish to regulate legal relationships pertaining to privacy. This paper introduces and examines those local government regulations which typically cause problems, with special emphasis on the practice of the Constitutional Court and the Curia.
