The City invites electors (people who live within the City, and can vote in local and state elections) to produce electronic petitions for Council to consider.
A petition can come from any elector or group who want Council to take action. For example, changing a policy, local law or taking action on an issue.
Petitions can request Council to take action for a certain purpose or for the benefit of particular people. The subject of a petition must be something the Council has the power to act on.
The elector requesting the petition is responsible for gathering valid signatures.
Please consider whether starting a petition is the best approach for you.
