The local government is a vital institution that plays a crucial role in shaping our communities. It is a system where power resides with elected officials and representatives who are accountable to the people they serve. The collective voice of residents and their participation in local decision-making processes are fundamental to the functioning of the local government. Ultimately, it is the citizens who hold the power to shape policies, allocate resources, and determine the direction of their localities. Therefore, it is the people themselves who ultimately rule through their active engagement and involvement in the local government.
