A Council’s principal role is to act as an informed and responsible decision maker which represents the interests of its community. The Port Augusta City Council makes decision on behalf of the community, however, members of the community have a role to play in informing Council of their needs and concerns and/or to provide information that may assist or influence Council’s decision.
A petition is one way in which members of the community may advise Council of their particular concerns regarding a specific issue or make requests of, and provide information to, Council.
The petition guidelines provide further information about making a petition, and the process for submitting to Council.
A template petition is also included for use.
