Currently in the Republic of Srpska these services are owned by the Republic. Local communities haven’t had much input as far as management structure or the policy of the company. At the moment there have been talks about the transferring of the ownership to the municipalities so the association asked NALAS to collect appropriate laws in other countries so that they can proceed with the comparisons. ALVRS were primarily interested in the ownership of these services. Who is in charge of communal enterprises (i.e. water supply, solid waste removal, central heating, road cleaning)? What is the role of the central/local governments?
