Sažetak

In a situation of reduced financial power of the state, questions arise regarding daily functioning of Croatian municipalities and cities: how are they being organized, do they have enough personnel, and whether they are able to provide a satisfactory quality in public services. The complaint about Croatia having too many municipalities (429) and cities (127) has often been made in both scientific and political circles. Such assessments were grounded heavily on the analysis of state and local budgets, with very few fieldwork studies. In this research we wanted to gather information about municipal problems and opportunities from the perspective of the local elite - the mayors, as well as to get to know the mayors themselves by analyzing their professional and social backgrounds. The findings are based on the analysis of 32 in-depth interviews with the mayors from three north-western Croatian counties.
