Charter Commission

Presently there is one vacancy open on the Charter Commission. The Mounds View Home Rule Charter establishes the basic organization, functions, and operational procedures of our city government. The purpose of the Charter Commission is to serve as custodians of the Mounds View City Charter in accordance with state laws to ensure that the Charter is an effective and workable document that will benefit our residents in overseeing city operations and expenditures.

The members are appointed by the District Judge to four-year overlapping terms. Approximately half of the appointments expire every two years. The Commission originated in 1979 when the City of Mounds View adopted a Home-Rule Charter Plan.

The Charter Commission currently meets on the 3rd Tuesday of every other month at 7 pm. Members are listed below:
