Submit a resident application


A residents' application enables the inhabitants of a municipality, a Verbandsgemeinde or a district to have certain matters dealt with in the municipal council, in the Verbandsgemeinderat or in the Kreistag.
Residents' applications may only deal with matters relating to the municipality's own sphere of activity, the Verbandsgemeinde or the district.

Residents must have reached the age of 14 to submit a resident application.

The resident application must contain a specific request with a justification. This request must not have been the subject of a resident application within the last year.

In addition, up to three persons are to be appointed to represent the signatories.

There are no costs.

If the residents' application is directed against a resolution of the municipal council, the municipal council or the district council or a decision-making committee, it must be submitted within two months of the notification of the resolution.

If the residents' application is admissible, the municipal council, the municipal council or the district council must advise it within three months of receipt of the application.

The resident application must be submitted in writing with a justification and with the signatures required to support it.

Further possibility of enforcing interests at municipal level:

A citizens' initiative is a community founded on the basis of a specific occasion. It is not bound by any particular legal form. The aim of a citizens' initiative is to influence public opinion, state institutions, parties or other groups.

Citizens' petitions and referendums enable citizens to decide directly for themselves in important matters of the municipality, the Verbandsgemeinde or the district. A referendum has the effect of a municipal council, municipal council or district council resolution.
