al-'Eizariyah Local Council
Shadia Adwan, Director office of the president of local Council.

al-‘Eizariyah Local Council was established in 1961. It provided services to the village under this name untill the Palestinian National Authority was established when it was renamed,"Al-‘Eizariyah Local Council.” During that period, the population of al-‘Eizariyah largely increased, the urban and commercial indicators rose, and housing projects and commercial shops increased significantly. More industrial companies were also established such as Al-Hayat Foodstuff Factory and Al-Quds Construction and Investment Company. As a result, the responsibilities of the Council, such as developing infrastructure, improvingtourism, and increasing the provision of services, increased.

The current Council consist of 13 members. There are 74 employees specialized in providing public services such as water electricity, cleaning services, protection of public property, organisation, issuing building licenses, etc.
