governmental area in St. Pölten


The Office of Provincial Government of Lower Austria  (Amt der NÖ Landesregierung) supports the provincial government in fulfilling its tasks. Apart from this, the provincial government is in charge of 21 other district governorships and 4 statutory towns which also deal with administrative tasks.

The provincial administration has a superior role in sovereignty matters, which means it can issue legal provisions binding on the citizens and also carry out those tasks transferred to it pursuant to the Federal Constitution (these include the implementation of the provisions of commercial, water, forestry, building and driving laws) as well as act as a concurrent player in civil-right dealings with its citizens - for example, it sets up and operates hospitals, builds and maintains highways and awards subsidies.

Municipalities:

In accordance with the principle of subsidiarity, the region's 573 municipalities may address matters concerning their own competence with discretion. The focus of municipal activity lies in service to the citizens with the major competences of municipalities lying mainly in land-use-planning and issues relating to communal building, fire, safety and health provisions. Other competences include the administration of roads, local traffic police, welfare and the elderly, drinking and domestic water, garbage disposal as well as sewerage.
