If you feel strongly on an issue, you can present a petition to Council. The petition will then be presented to Council for action.
Petitions must be submitted on the standard petition form and in accordance with the following guidelines:
It is recommended that a covering letter accompany the petition, however, this is not essential.
The petition will be registered and an acknowledgment letter, outlining the processes involved, will be sent to the person responsible for the petition.
The recipient will be asked to notify all petitioners of the action being taken.
The petition is then referred to the next available Ordinary Council Meeting for consideration and any action that may be required.
Following this, the person responsible will be notified in writing of the outcome and asked to pass this information on to all petitioners.
