A petition calling for local government elections has found no support from two of the region's mayors.
The state parliament is being asked to review the decision which postponed local government elections to September 2021 due to the concern about the spread of COVID-19 earlier this year.
The petition can be found on the state parliament's website.
It also asked the assembly to remind fifth term councillors to refrain from making decisions that have significant community concern and opposition.
The mayors of both Griffith and Leeton said they don't see the need for the decision to be reversed however.
"It was an early call made by the Premier to call the election off," Leeton mayor Paul Maytom said.
"I thought at the time it was an early call, and a bold call."
Councillor Maytom originally planned to retire from council this year, however he's since re-organised his plans.
He said Leeton's other councillors had also re-positioned for the extra year.
Cr Maytom said councillors could retire early if they chose to, and because the next election was less than a year away, there wouldn't be a by-election.
"I'm happy to do another 12 months," he said.
Cr Maytom said the rest of Leeton's councillors were also happy with to do an extra year and there had been no talk about bringing the election forward.
Griffith mayor John Dal Broi said the decision had been made and councillors had adapted to the situation and were "getting on with it".
"I support the decision, it's no big deal, it's another 12 months," Councillor Dal Broi said.
He said nearly two months had passed since the last election was due and the time left to organise an earlier election was running out.
Cr Dal Broi said social distancing restrictions were still in place which made any election harder to conduct.
Member for Murray Helen Dalton backed the petition's call for elections and said there was "no reason" to hold them back.
"I have asked (local government minister) Shelley Hancock to re-consider her decision and make move it to March," Mrs Dalton said.
"A petition may help persuade her to bring it forward."
Mrs Dalton said voters wanted to see council elections in the 10 local government areas in the electorate.
"People want to see change and want to have the opportunity to get some fresh blood into councils as well," she said.
Mrs Dalton said local government was important and had a clear impact on local communities.
"It's so important to have a good function council and one that works with their local MP as well," she said.
"If we work together there's no limit to what we can achieve."
