The article concerns the problem of the non-negligibility of public administration bodies, both local government and government administration in the context of the binding act on the ban on propagating communism. Significant factors affecting the non-negligibility of local government bodies is their systemic position in the state, which is related to the measures to protect the independence of their operation. The practice of exercising governmental supervisory powers under the Act on the prohibition of propagating communism, where one can notice a kind of automatism of these bodies, leads to the actual neglect of self-government bodies, which after all are bodies enjoying constitutionally guaranteed independence. This leads to conflicts in which the following factors play an important role: the question of assessing the historical significance of certain facts; the need to maintain the standard of independence of local government units as decentralized entities; the problem of the identity of local government units.
