Park and Tree Commission

The Park and Tree Commission makes recommendations to the City Council regarding the use, maintenance and development of all city parks, and supervises the oak wilt control plan. It also supervises the shade tree program, which seeks to safeguard the urban forest from both natural and man-made hazards. For more information please visit the Park and Tree Commission home page.

Charter Commission

The Charter Commission is required to meet at least once annually. The City Charter, approved by voters and issued by the State of Minnesota in 1982, allows the City, in some instances, broader powers than otherwise granted by state law. Among other things, the voters have the right to initiative and referendum.  For more information please visit the Charter Commission home page.
