Committees of the municipality    EN

Author: ARDELEANU KONSTANTIN

After the unification of Dobrudja to Romania in 1878, the commune of Constanţa was organised into several services, and such committees were already functional in 1879: the Inner Service, the Service of Public Safety, the Fire Fighters Service, the Technical Service, the Service of the Communal Hospital and of the Municipal Physician [1]. By mid-1890s the municipality consisted of the Secretary, the Accounting and Ascertainment Service, the Civil Registry Office, the Office of the Communal Cashier and of the Perception of Revenues, the Service of Technical Works, the Sanitary Service, the Fire Fighters and Street Cleaning Service [2].

Later, after the rapid growth of the city in early 20th century, according to the chapters of the local budget the municipality paid for 14 different services: the Central Administration, the Sanitary Service, the Veterinary Service, the Hospital Service, the Staff of the Cathedral Church, the Staff of the Vocal Choir, the Fire Fighters Service, the Street Cleaning Service, the Communal Cashier’s Office, the Service of Measures and Weights, the Service of Garage Lines, the Technical Service, the Service of Electrical Lighting, the Gardens Service. However, a different source mentions that the inner organisation of the municipality consisted of an administrative office and an accounting office [3]. For the responsibilities of these services, see the template on Galaţi, as they are to a certain degree similar.
