Minister of Public Administration and Local Self-Government, Branko Ružić, opened the Single Administrative Point in Žitište today, and from now on citizens in that municipality will be able to complete their errands within the administration in one place, faster and more efficiently.
The Ministry of Public Administration and Local Self-Government has supported this project in the Municipality of Žitište with RSD 7,450,000.
A single administrative point is a centralized place for joint procedures, which has the aim of saving time and money for citizens and allows for the performance of several procedures at one single point. Within its Single Administrative Point, Žitište has opened six counters.
“I am glad that the citizens of Žitište will now have one point where they will be able to complete their errands within the administration and that they will no longer have to visit several different institutions”, said Minister Ružić.
The Minister assessed that Žitište is a good example of a small but valuable municipality, in which the management strives to become even better organized in order to establish better quality of services provided to citizens.
The President of the Municipality of Žitište, Mitar Vučurević, stated that the trend of young people leaving that municipality had significantly decreased and that he believed that the fact that the municipality took care of raising the quality of life of citizens had also contributed to that fact.
The Ministry of Public Administration and Local Self-Government initiated this project in 2018, when eight local self-governments were supported with RSD 52 million as a pilot project in the opening of Single Administrative Points. We continued to support cities and municipalities in the opening of SAPs over the course of 2019, when we supported six additional cities and municipalities with a total of RSD 45 million dinars, while RSD 30 million are intended for this project in 2020.
