you don't really have to sign the screenFor those who weren’t aware of it, the Council has a nice online service that allows people to “petition the Wellington City Council, via the internet, on matters relevant to the Council’s business”.

Anyone can create one, so, if there’s something bugging you that you think the council should be looking into, just go right ahead. (Remember though, if it’s something that needs fixing as opposed to some more substantial infrastructural problem, just use their Fix It service).

A majority of the current petitions cover one of Wellingtonista’s favourite topics, namely urban transport (they’re removing cycle lanes!?), so, if you’d like to add your weight to those issues, or raise one of your own, rock on over and have your say.

(Note: this service is bought to you by the excellently entitled ‘Democratic Services‘ council department).
