Denis S. Mikheev, Igor G. Dudko, Tatiana N. Mikheeva


The article is devoted to the role of public control when exercising local authority publicity. Scientists point out that in legal regulation of local government modern states lay emphasis on publicity as the basic fundamental principle and consider it a tool that connects local authorities with citizens of municipal entities (Мikheev, 2014). The aim of the work is the investigation of the mechanism of the principle of publicity at the municipal level. The analysis of the elements of the principle shows that public control is one of the key directions in its realization. However, this social institution is not sufficiently studied. The issue of the federal legal act hasn’t improved the situation. According to V.V.Grib, law is not capable to ensure the full legal regulation of the relations concerning the exercise of public control (Grib, 2014). As a result of assessment of the modern state of public control, the authors have elicited the specific character of its exercise at the municipal level. Legal algorithms were proposed. They can make the mechanism of public control work. The number of proposals concerning the improvement of federal legislation and normative lawmaking at the level of subordinate entities of the Federation was made. In this connection, this investigation is notable for its scientific novelty and as it has practical implication for exercising public control in local societies. Authors’ conclusions can be used in scientific work for studying problems of local authority publicity, public control, interaction between citizens and local authorities.
