Comment on the charter amendment
The City Council has proposed an amendment to the Charter Commission. This proposal would place a question on the ballot in November. The amendment would remove the Police Department. In its place, the City would create a new Community Safety & Violence Prevention Department.
Message from City Clerk
On March 25, Governor Walz issued Executive Order 20-20 which directs Minnesotans to stay at home, an order that is effective March 27 to April 10. During that period, the City of Minneapolis is reducing or limiting many of its public-facing services.

- Legal publication and posting of ordinances, resolutions, and other official acts of the City.
- Service of legal process or related documents upon the City of Minneapolis.
All other services during this time period will be handled by phone, email, U.S. postal service, or by reference to the website. This includes the following:
- To register to vote or access election-related information and services, visit Elections & Voter Services.
