Approval of the tariffs and the principles of settlement for collective water supply and collective wastewater discharge – approving commentary on the ruling of the Voivodship Administrative Court in Poznań of 13 June 2017 (IV SA/Po 246/17) 

In accordance with Article 24, para. 1 of the Act on collective water supply and collective wastewater discharge, the rates for collective water supply and collective wastewater discharge are subject to approval by a resolution of the municipal council, with the exception of the amended tariffs in connection with the change in the rate of VAT. As the analysis of the ruling in question indicates, in order to effectively pass a resolution refusing to approve the tariff, the municipal council needs to cite the regulations that have been breached while preparing the tariff, which means that it is only possible to contest the tariff if it is in breach of the provisions of the law.

Correct taxation of an entity conducting mining operations with local taxes in substantive and procedural terms – partially critical commentary on the ruling of the Voivodship Administrative Court in Kraków of 6 July 2017 (I SA/Kr 467/17) 

The commentary on the ruling of the Voivodship Administrative Court in Kraków, applies to three key issues that are both in the spheres of tax and procedural law and in the sphere of proceedings before the administrative courts, oscillating around the title issue of the correct taxation of mining operations with local taxes in substantive and procedural law terms. The taxation of items in the possession of a mining entity with local taxes has been discussed under substantive tax law, whereby the position expressed by the court with regard to the taxation of land is criticized. In the second aspect considered, the court ruled on what it considers to be the correct method of handling tax proceedings. It is impossible to agree with the part of the position that applies to the implementation of the principle expressed in Article 191 of the Tax Code, as it is a position which is in conflict with the rules on handling tax proceedings, illogical and based on an erroneous inference and consequently creates a principle, which is undesirable for the tax system, of assigning the exclusive responsibility for the pending investigation to the tax authority, even in the situation where the taxpayer deliberately obstructs it, acting with the intention of obtaining a limitation of liability, which is favourable for the taxpayer. In the third aspect, the ruling in question reveals numerous defects involving the mistaken acceptance that substantive law was breached, whereas it already arises from the justification of the ruling that the Court only contested the breach of procedural law and it was precisely such procedural breaches that constituted the core of the dispute. Consequently the justification of the ruling does not reflect the canons provided for by the said act.

Finding that a councillor’s mandate has expired as a result of not living in the municipality where the mandate is exercised – approving commentary on the ruling of the Supreme Administrative Court of 4 July 2017 (II OSK 862/17) 

The commentary applies to the ruling of the Supreme Administrative Court on the complaint of a councillor about finding that his mandate has expired. The author agrees with the ruling of the Supreme Administrative Court, emphasizing that a candidate’s centre of interests in life (primarily family and property) and not the domicile where he is registered as a permanent resident or the place where he is entered into the register of voters is decisive in establishing the candidate’s permanent place of residence. He also analyses several issues of a general nature regarding this issue, indicating that the court adjudicating on such matters should take into account whether finding that a mandate has expired results in depriving the councillor ex post of the right to stand for election in given elections.

The possibility of prolonging the deadline to remedy shortcomings in an application – partially critical commentary on the ruling of the Voivodship Administrative Court in Wrocław of 20 September 2017 (III SAB/Wr 6/17) 

The commentary applies to a ruling in which the Court assessed the problem of the inaction of a body of public administration and its legal consequences. According to the Court, inaction should also refer to a condition in which the body refuses to recognize or settle the case, because it erroneously considers that circumstances have arisen that release it from the obligation to handle proceedings in a specific case and end it with an administrative decision being issued. However, the court also holds that, since the authority with competence in the case had a request from the complainant to extend the deadline for eliminating all shortcomings in the application, it should settle it even after its expiry. According to the author of the commentary, the lawmakers did not provide for such a possibility. First, in the legal situation to which the ruling applied, it was not legally possible to “extend” the deadline for remedying shortcomings in an application. Second, the passage of the 7-day deadline for remedying the shortcomings in the application resulted in the matter being left unrecognized by law. Therefore, although it is possible to agree with the assessment of the court about the late action in the case, the court’s conclusions as to how settle the case are in conflict with the applicable law.

Making a recording available for a council session – critical commentary on the ruling of the Supreme Administrative Court of 15 June 2016 (I OSK 3162/14)

One of the principles of self-government law is the minuting of meetings of bodies of territorial self-government units. Although this obligation is not clearly expressed in the legislation, it can be inferred from the provisions establishing the principle of transparency of action of the self-government authorities. These minutes are usually prepared in detail after the session, which is expressed in their approval during the next session of the legislative body. In order to facilitate their preparation, many of the statutes of territorial self-government units allow for the preparation of recordings from the session on the basis of which the minutes are then prepared and the recordings are destroyed after a longer or shorter period. In this situation, there is no doubt that some applicants request the provision of access to precisely these recordings as public information, almost certainly guided by fact that they better reflect the course of the session and doubtless constitute authentic and original source material. These requests do not always meet with the approval of the addressees, as a result of which they end up in court in the form of complaints about inaction in the case of providing access to public information. 
In the practice of the administrative courts, the matter of considering a recording (especially an audio recording) as public information gives rise to discrepancies. On the one hand, this is considered their nature, while on the other, it is believed that these recordings are not public information (a manifestation of this position may be the commented ruling). These differences are even noticeable in the case law of this same court. It is therefore a significant problem of interpretation, which therefore requires a solution. However, the arguments lying at the foundation of the first and second lines of judgement first need to be presented.
