MetadataShow full item record
This study aimed to find out how the implementation of village authority can be carried out in order to realize the village autonomy in the case of Indonesia. The problem of this research was how the exercise of authority based on the right of origin and local authority of the village is related to the autonomy and self-financing capability; how the execution of authority is assigned by the supra village government; and how the management of village finances is executed after the grant is received from the central government. This study is an empirical juridical research which used qualitative analysis method. The results obtained from the research showed that the implementation of village authority in Suka Raya Village is rather dominated by supra village government which is handed over to the village, and that this government activity is more prominent than its origin. Although the authority cares for local cultural values related to birth customs, marriages and deaths are still carried out by the community, there is no special preservation effort on the Village Government's part. The management of the village funds should be adjusted to the Decision of Regent Deli Serdang where the amount of village funds received is calculated based on the population, poverty rate, area and village geographic difficulty index. The use of village funds received is still prioritized for the construction of road infrastructure and drainage.
