In 1969, the City became a Home Rule Charter City. We are one of 107 cities governed by a Home Rule Charter.
Brooklyn Park is governed by the City Charter, which is the “constitution” of the city. This commission reviews the City Charter, proposes changes and makes recommendations to the City Council as needed. The Chief Judge of Hennepin County District Court makes appointments.
