Abstract. The paper deals with issues of the competence of municipality as a key concept of the theory and practice of public administration. It can be assumed that the municipality is a kind of element between civil society and the state. This fact has, resp. should have an impact not only on the nature of territorial self-government and public administration, but also on the nature of the municipality’s competence. For this reason, the author prefers the divided competence of the municipality. He is of the opinion that the original (own) competence of the municipality should be the predominant segment of the competence of the municipality and the elements of non-sovereign administration should predominate in its activities. It presents some inspiring foreign suggestions, draws attention to the prevailing problems, as well as possible modifications in terms of determining the competence of the municipality. It draws attention to the consequences of the nationalization of local self-government. He criticizes the non-traditional way of defining the competence as a “liquid” competence of the municipality.

Key words: divided competence, original competence, delegated competence, sovereign administration, non-sovereign administration
