Functions of a District Council
While the newly elected district councillors are about to take office, we would like to remind the district councillors and our HK citizens the functions of a District Council:
Under Section 61 District Councils Ordinance (Cap. 547), the functions of a District Council are—
(a)to advise the Government—
(i)on matters affecting the well-being of the people in the District; and
(ii)on the provision and use of public facilities and services within the District; and
(iii)on the adequacy and priorities of Government programmes for the District; and
(iv)on the use of public funds allocated to the District for local public works and community activities; and
(b)where funds are made available for the purpose, to undertake—
(i)environmental improvements within the District;
(ii)the promotion of recreational and cultural activities within the District; and
(iii)community activities within the District.
Hope that each of the newly elected district councillors could do their part to fulfil their legal duties and functions. HK citizens would supervise the work and results of the district councillors.
