City of Oslo, Agency for Urban Environment

Oslo kommune, Bymiljøetaten

The City of Oslo holds both municipal and county functions. The City of Oslo has a parliamentary system of governance. The City Government is responsible to the City Council in the same way that the National Government is responsible to the National Parliament. The decentralised public administration in the City of Oslo is organized into 15 districts. These districts are run by locally elected District Councils. These 15 districts deal with a number of matters, including:

  • care for the elderly
  • day care facilities
  • youth clubs
  • mental health care facilities
  • health centres
  • services for the mentally disabled
  • treatment and care of substance abusers
  • integration of refugees and immigrants

The decision making power of the District Councils is delegated by the City Council. Finances are granted in part by the City Council while the balance comes from the political and administrative systems of the City of Oslo by way of fees on services.
