Comptroller submits 2017 report on local authorities

 State Comptroller Yosef Shapira submitted Tuesday his 2017 report on local government.

Shapira found that the municipalities in Herzliya, Rahat, Ashkelon and Bnei Brak were performing construction in violation of the law and its directives, and ignored illegal construction activities performed by their authorities and companies. The comptroller said these violations of the authority responsible for maintaining and enforcing the law are particularly reprehensible.

The comptroller checked public facilities in four cities: Tel Aviv, Akko, Tiberias and Nazareth and pointed out a lack of public toilet facilities as well as lack of maintenance and cleanliness in the existing public toilets which he said could cause "environmental health hazards."

The comptroller also investigated information security and investigated individual municipalities,pointing out issues which required attention.
