Petitions

Petitions are a formal written request, typically signed by many people, that requests Council to take action in respect of a particular cause. 

Download a Petition for Electors Form and follow the instructions to complete the content correctly.

  • Once received, a petition will be presented to the next Ordinary Council Meeting for acceptance and then forwarded to Administration for investigation and action 
  • A follow up report will be presented to an Ordinary Council Meeting as soon as is practical on a recommended course of action 
  • The submitter (the person who lodges the petition and to whom correspondence in respect of the petition may be served) will be advised of Council's resolution. 

A petition will not be accepted if it is defamatory or any action it proposes is unlawful.
