The City of Robbinsdale has a City Charter form of Government consisting of a Council-City Manager system with 4 Council Members and Mayor.
The Charter Commission consists of a minimum of 7 members to a maximum of 15 members with staggered 4-year terms and has its basis in City Charter rather than City Ordinance. Members are appointed by Council Resolution recommending qualified voters of the City to the Chief Judge of Hennepin District Court who makes the final appointment. The Charter Commission is required to meet at least once per year, and must meet if requested to consider an amendment by Council Resolution or Petition of residents (equal to 5% of the votes cast at the last state general election in the City).
The Charter Commission may also recommend amendments to the Robbinsdale City Charter to ensure that it remains a usable document which is consistent with state law.
The Charter Commission Meeting previously scheduled for April 23rd has been postponed until further notice. Meeting will be held at City Hall and thereafter subject to call.
There are currently 2 openings on the Charter Commission. If you would like to apply to serve on the commission, simply complete the Commission Application Form and email it to the staff liaison or drop off at City Hall.
