Petition for Reasonable Petition Requirements for Voter Referendum

This 1-page PDF is a copy of the petition being circulated by IndyAustin to bring about an election to amend the Austin City Charter to provide a period of time after enactment of an non-emergency ordinance by the Austin City Council to allow completion of a petition drive, which if successful, would trigger an election to allow Austin voters to either accept or repeal such ordinances. The Charter amendment would also require a supermajority of at least eight council members to approve an ordinance as an emergency for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health or safety.
