Governance

Safn Ásmundar Sveinssonar

The CoR's governance system is divided into two parts. On the one hand, councils, committees and boards entrusted with elected representatives (or persons acting on their behalf). Their role includes developing policies and working on issues of common interest, and overseeing the city's institutions. However, it is a field, offices and company owned by the city. It employs officials and other city staff who enforce city rules and approvals.

Councils, committees and boards

The Civil Administration elects to the multiple Councils, Committees and Boards of Directors acting under the authority of the Civil Administration. The CoR's Board of Governors and City Council meetings specify the councils, committees and boards involved, but it is the city council that elects its representatives to them.
