The article is devoted to the feasibility of city administrations and modern urban sustainable development through a comprehensive review of the theoretical and legal framework. Nowadays, it is important to study the effectiveness of city administrations, which is heterogeneous in its structure, given its special place in the general system of competence of local self-government. Accordingly, problems arise not only in determining the structure of competence of city administrations, but also in setting its limits. Determining the limits of the competence of city administrations is the most important element that affects the consolidation of the general competence of municipal authorities and its redistribution among municipal entities, including the population of the urban district. The paper investigates not only the ambiguous and disordered content, but also the scope of competence of city district administrations. Based on the analysis of theoretical studies, provisions of regulatory legal acts that establish the powers of city administrations, their practical activities, some ways to address the issue of delimitation of competence of city administrations at the horizontal and vertical levels are proposed.
