According to the legislation on local self-government, the municipal mission is to govern effective, efficient and at the same level as the citizen. One of the instruments for accomplishing this mission is:
- realization of services in accordance with municipality needs,
- providing access, quality and cost affordable by everyone,
- in accordance with the standards required by law, and,
- respecting national and regional policies.
Vlora Municipality is responsible for designing and deploying a service performance management system to improve the level and quality delivery of these services.
The assessment of environmental services funding in 2017 highlighted for the Municipality of Vlora the fact that the budget for environmental services focuses on public services that improperly affect the environment and does not envisage the development of environmental services up to four years after the administrative-territorial reform.
For this reason, the project intends to include a group of observers who will be trained in cooperation with the Urban Research Institute and will use a unified system (Trained Observers Technique) for the environmental service provision situation in Vlora documenting it with photographs and an evaluation form.
Based on the evaluation of trained observers, Vlora Municipality, which is responsible for providing environmental services, will make the decision to increase or reallocate funds for that service.
