Open Government

As your local government, we’re proud to work for you openly and transparently!

How We Govern

Our city government runs under a city manager-council structure.

Our residents elect one mayor citywide and two Council members for each of our three Council Districts. The Brooklyn Park City Council then appoints a City Manager who runs the day-to-day operations of the City, much like a company’s Chief Executive Officer.
