The BBC reports that campaigners have taken to the streets with a petition for their Kent town to be allowed its own parish council.
Ramsgate is currently represented by 17 charter trustees elected onto Thanet District Council.
But the council is conducting a parish review with local people given until 18 January to have their say on the issue.
Members of the Ramsgate First group were promoting their campaign for a town council on Saturday, trying to collect signatures for a petition.
Thanet's parish review for Ramsgate began on 6 December.
Chief executive Richard Samuel said at the time: "When a decision is made we want to ensure it takes local people's views into account."
A "yes" decision would see the Ramsgate Charter Trustees abolished after more than 30 years of existence.
A parish council would have a role to play on issues such as planning, highways and street lighting.
However, such a change would incur an extra cost for Ramsgate residents, which would be added to council tax bills. - Seven other towns in Thanet have their own parish council
