Withdrawing delegation authority from a deputy in town council

Updated on

The mayor may, at any time, withdraw the delegation given to a deputy whom he has granted. It is a discretionary power that must have as its objective the interest of the proper functioning of the municipal administration.


Withdrawal of the deputy mayor's delegation: municipal by-law

Pursuant to Article L 2122-18 of the General Code of Territorial Communities, this decision, which takes the form of an order, does not have to be motivated or subject to an adversarial procedure.

When the mayor has withdrawn the delegations he has given to a deputy, it is the municipal council that must decide on the retention of the deputy.
