The chapter summarises the results of three qualitative case studies of local government and the development potential of three selected small municipalities: Verměřovice, Vražkov, Roztoky. The case studies are based on interviews with the main actors of public affairs in the communites and on participant observation of the meetings of the local council. The studies document the dominant role of the mayor as development actor. The case studies also document the constraints on local authorities which they face achieving development goals.
