First there was the successful Burwood Pool parents’ petition (approx. 850 signatures) this past spring to save the Burwood pool. Then there was the petition to save Allison Elementary (approx. 650 signatures) that was presented to the Board of Education at their September meeting. Now, there’s a third one, a petition asking Norwood City Council to keep funding the Norwood Health Department. With upwards of 30 people reported to be out gathering signatures, it appears Norwood residents have discovered the power of petitioning our local governing bodies.
If anyone is interested in signing the petition tomorrow, Saturday, a resident got permission from the manager of the Norwood Post Office at 4515 Allison Street to stand outside the front door to solicit signatures between 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. We’ll keep our readers informed of any other designated locations/times the petition is available to sign.
