Minneapolis Charter Commission seeking applicants for vacant position

The City is seeking applicants for a single vacancy on its 15-member Minneapolis Charter Commission. Membership to the commission is appointed by the Chief Judge of Hennepin County, the Honorable James T. Swenson.

If you are interested in applying for, or obtaining more information about the position, visit the Minneapolis Charter Commission website, or contact the Office of the City Clerk at cityclerk@minneapolismn.gov or (612) 673-3358. Persons may apply on their own behalf, nominate others for consideration, or inform the Office of the City Clerk of persons to whom they wish application materials be sent. 

Applications must be received no later than April 8, 2011.
