In the modern literature the role of local government is reduced to the execution of policy of the central government.

The following article: 1) defines a set of basic elements of the “service” model for municipal administration; 2) describes the gap between the “model” and the current state of “service” municipal administration in Russia; 3) suggests social technologies for the approximation of municipal administration to the desirable state.
