Gospodarczo-finansowe aspekty działalności samorządu terytorialnego w ramach inwestycji Centralnego Okręgu Przemysłowego (1936–1939)
Economic-financial Aspects of the Functioning of the Territorial Self-government with the Central Industrial Region Investments (1936–1939)
The purpose of this article is to demonstrate the impact exerted by the investments of the Central Industrial Region upon the local administration. The source survey conducted by the author proves that the creation of a new industrial region was connected with an extremely wide gamut of problems relating to local socio-economic life. The key issue was to adapt the economic structure to the developing industry. Exceptional responsibility for this task was entrusted to particular rungs of territorial self-government. An intensification of the activity pursued by state investments forced self-government unions to increase liability for all socio-economic issues in the region and hence to enlarge the expenses borne by local budgets. The presented reflections show upon the example of selected domains of the local economy the degree to which the activity of self-government unions grew in the Central Economic Region. Next, the author went on to analyse the functioning of self-government finances using the example of the budgets of particular county communal unions in order to illustrate the actual efforts made by the self-government administration as part of support for the socio-economic modernisation of the central and southern territories of the Second Republic of Poland.
