Council, Commissions and Boards
The Department is compromised of Clerk to Council’s office, District Contracts Committee, District Service Commission, Land Board, Local Government Public Accounts Committee Council and Standing Committees.

The District Council is mandated to formulate policies and ordinances for effective implementation of both Central government and District programs to ensure prosperity for all. The District Council Cerebrates the First anniversary of term of office. The Council boosts of the following achievements.

  • Council and Committee meetings held
  • Consistently holding the Thursday Field visits for Community Mobilization and Monitoring of Government programs
  • Participated in the induction for all the New Local government Leaders organized by the Ministry of Local Government.

  • Made various resolutions in regard to service delivery in the District which to a great extent enhanced the welfare of Mpigi residents these include among others:-
  • The halting of all operations by the Save Lake Victoria Task Force among the fishing community where the operatives had turned out to be doing more harm than good.
  • The creation of model Villages in all Sub Counties which policy is to be continued with even next Financial Year.
  • Formation of District Disability Council to oversee the development of PWD’s in Mpigi District.

Challenges

  • Delays in elections of Women Councils has hindered the operations and utilization of Women Council Funds
  • Inadequate facilitation to Members due to decreasing Locally raised revenue
  • Delayed Local Council Elections have relatively affected bottom up planning and effective monitoring of projects.

The District Service Commission It is mandated by equipping the District and Urban Local Governments with qualified, competent and accountable Human resources who can deliver timely and quality services. In F/Y 2011/2012, the commission has engaged in field activities to monitor staff functionalities along with CAO’S Office. Through CAO, we hope the District executive and Council will take up efforts to have full composition realized on the Commission.

Local Government Public Accounts Committee

The District boosts of a fully appointed functional Board, the Board is funded by Public Accounts Fund (PAF). In F/Y 2011/2012, there has been approval of Land applications by the Board.
Challenges

  • Much as the District approved the area Land Committees at Sub Counties and Town Council, these have never been indicated their roles and responsibilities which have created a performance gap.
  • Influx of Land developers in the District has led to increased displacements of people in form of evictions.
