A municipality is a complex organization with many different tasks.
A municipality attends to welfare-related tasks where people live, and it is here that residents should feel a sense of belonging. In addition to being a welfare producer, a municipality should also be an active community developer.
Elected officials have the overall management and decision-making responsibility in the community. This means an overall responsibility for results, and the responsibility of organizing the municipality as appropriately as possible with regard to the development of local democracy, a comprehensive community development and best possible production of services for local inhabitants.
Our slogan is "Close enough, and far enough away." Our vision is "Quality of life near Lake Mjøsa." Eastern
Toten is the place for those who want to stay rural, yet central to job opportunities and
diverse cultural and outdoor recreational activities.
Here you will have good prospects for a high quality of life, short distance to urban areas and a varied supply of interesting jobs. Would you like to establish your own business/place of work, all for a relatively low cost? Then Eastern Toten should be an exciting option, where we are constantly developing new and diverse housing options - in urban or residential groups in the beautiful countryside.
No matter where you live in the community, you will have a maximum 15 minute drive to the community centre in Lena.
