Abstract: Providing local public services is the main task of municipalities as the basic units of local self-government. The aim of the article is to present and assess the opinions of residents about the quality of public services available in the area of their municipality. The source of empirical data was the results of own surveys carried out in the regions of southern Poland. The respondents assessed the social services available in the municipality better than the municipal services provided by the technical infrastructure. The highest rates of the level of local public services were formulated by city dwellers, while lower scores were characteristic of rural areas. Local government authorities should take care of the quality of the local public services offer, as it is an important factor determining the standard of living of the local communities.
