Petitions are a valuable resource for the community to use to make requests to and provide information to Council. They are one of the ways in which members of the community can advise Council of their concerns and influence the decision making process.

As an informed and responsible decision maker, the City of Marion has a role to ensure these decisions are made with openness and transparency whilst aligning these with the requirements of the Local Government Act 1999 and associated regulations.

City of Marion has adopted a Petition Policy that is consistent with the Local Government (Procedures at Meetings) Regulations 2013 and also Council’s Code of Practice Procedures at Meetings 2014.

Important Note: The petition is a public document, by signing it, it is agreed that the names, addresses and signatures on the petition will be made available in the public realm. The City of Marion will record these details for the purpose of the petition only.
