Council Objectives

The City of Maplewood operates under the Council-Manager plan. Under this form of government, all legislative power is vested in the elected, part-time City Council. This Council consists of a Mayor and 4 council members who are elected at large for 4-year staggered terms.

The council adopts policies and ordinances and appoints a professional, full-time City Manager to carry them out. The City Manager is solely responsible for the administration of city business and may delegate authority to promote efficient use of staff time.

Economic Development Authority

The Mayor and Council Members also serve as the Maplewood Area Economic Development Authority (EDA) and was established and has all of the powers, duties and responsibilities pursuant to Minnesota State Statutes §§ 469.090 through 469.1081. The EDA has the role and responsibility and authority to carry out economic and industrial development and redevelopment within the Maplewood area pursuant to bylaws as may be adopted by the authority.

The EDA confers with city departments and other public and private groups on matters relating to business and industrial development and periodically surveys the area's industrial and commercial climate.
