What does the administration think?

The administration is the action team of Munich politics. Because it makes sure that the resolutions from the Town Hall also become reality. If, for example, a new road is to be built, the administration will implement this project.
The head of the entire administration is the Lord Mayor. The various subject departments that make up the administration are headed by spokespersons. These in turn are elected by the city council.

Organigram Munich

In the political circulatory system, citizens are the oxygen that breathes life into the entire system. Because they elect the various political bodies and thus give them the mandate to govern. These bodies, such as the Lord Mayor, City Council, District Committees and Administration, are closely linked. They work towards each other, discuss and check each other. For the system to work well, everyone involved has to throw the ball at each other, just like a well-rehearsed team. The playmakers are the citizens. And those who don't participate are missing on the pitch and leave the game to others.

How does a proposal work?

Many changes in Munich begin with a city council proposal. And it works like this: One can imagine a proposal as a gentle breeze, which grows stronger through arguments into a powerful wind of change. City councillors, for example, learn that there are too few cycle paths in Munich. So they make a proposal. This is then examined by the relevant departments and a proposal for a decision is drawn up by the relevant administration. This paper is called a resolution draft. They will be voted on in the city council and if everything goes well, there will soon be a new cycle path. Such proposals can be made on all sorts of topics and trigger real storms of change in Munich.
