People with an opinion on the Central Otago District Council's representation review can let the council know about it online.
The council's initial proposal on representation, which suggests eight rather than the current 10 councillors be elected at large, was released for public perusal on Thursday.
The council adopted the proposal last week but it was not unanimous - two councillors voted against it.
Others, including deputy mayor Neil Gillespie, thought producing a proposal different from the status quo would help initiate public discussion and feedback.
Those wanting to submit online can do so via the council's website: www.codc.govt.nz.
However, traditional means of making a submission will also be available.
Submissions close at 5pm on September 28.
The council will hold a hearing on submissions on October 12.
Following feedback from the community, a final proposal will be adopted on October 31.
If the decision is appealed, it could go to the Local Government Commission for a decision.
