I would like to start a grass-roots petition drive to petition the Richardson city council to repeal a city ordinance having to do with the new drainage fee ordinance No. 3843. Collecting 5000 signatures is a major effort. When I’m done I don’t want to be told that the petition is missing information or not acceptable for some reason.
The city charter (Section 14.01. Petition) repeatedly uses the language like “proposed ordinance”.
And I don’t know if that applies to what I want to do. I am not a lawyer and I don’t write ordinances. I simply want to know what process and information is required to make this petition successful? I am willing to pay for a consultation if you send contact info via PM.
