Public Trustees Department
The Public Trustees Department is a supervisory authority that deals with matters relating to public trusteeship, administratorship and guardianship (representation). The department also recruits new public trustees and administrators.
The Public Trustees Department’s brief as a supervisory authority is to check that the representative is performing their duties in an appropriate manner. When an application for or notification of representation is received, the Department investigates what the need is. The investigation and a proposal for a representative are then submitted to the district court, which makes the final decision.
The elected representatives on the Public Trustees Committee make decisions on how the City should work in this area. The Public Trustees Department must then implement the committee’s decisions.
The work of the Public Trustees Committee is led by Head of Department Håkan Andersson. The Department has five units and an administrative function.
