• Abstract

    This study, conducted in Deli Serdang Regency, Indonesia, explores the challenges associated with the policy of village infrastructure service and examines the relationship between the execution of village administration programs/policies in the region. The research employed a constructivist paradigm and a qualitative approach, gathering data through in-depth interviews and discussions with various local informants. These informants included the headman, village administration secretary, members of the democratic village council-BPD, the regency secretary, and a prominent local figure. The findings reveal limited land availability as a village asset, leading to constrained construction of village structures and a lack of financial resources for new facilities. Also, historical structures are inadequately maintained, and many village roads are poorly maintained. Various factors, such as communication elements, resource availability, disposition, and organizational structure, contribute to the challenges in implementing village infrastructure service policies. To address these issues, the village collaborates with the community, businesses, and other stakeholders to solve local infrastructure problems.
