Hailey citizens have the right to enact ordinances through the initiative process,
and to repeal ordinances through the referendum process. This process begins with
a petition, which must conform to specific standards set forth in Chapter 1.16 of
the Hailey Municipal Code. The initiative and referendum processes give citizens
a powerful voice in shaping the laws governing the city.
The City Clerk’s office is available to answer questions about the initiative and referendum processes.
