City Council Meetings
The City Council holds four meetings a month in the Council Chambers at City Hall, 100 Civic Center Parkway. The public is welcome to attend all of these meetings. These meetings are all aired live and replayed on Burnsville Civic Channel (BCTV) 16 for cable subscribers and available for streaming on demand online.
All meetings start at 6:30 p.m. and are open to the public.
The City Council offers members of the public the opportunity to comment on items of public interest at City Council meetings during the "Citizen Comments" agenda item and during "Public Hearings." Ten minutes are reserved for Citizen Comments. This portion of the agenda is for issues that are not included on an agenda or are not in the application process at City Hall.
No Council action should be expected during Citizen Comments, as the Council needs to thoroughly study all proposals or requests not of a routine nature.
If an item is on an agenda, public comment on that item must take place during a "Public Hearing," which can be held by the Council or a City Advisory Commission and provides the opportunity for any resident to fully present his or her position on an issue.
Council Meetings have a mandatory adjournment of 11:30 p.m.
Boards and Commissions
Boards and commissions advise the City Council on policy issues. All meetings are open to the public. Agendas are posted in the City Hall lobby and on the City web site. Applications to serve on boards and commissions may be obtained from the City Clerk, 100 Civic Center Parkway, 952-895-4490 or on the online.
