Communications Department

What we do

We tell the stories of Minneapolis City Government, gathering and distributing information to keep folks informed about city policies, programs, services and neighborhoods. If you want to watch your City leaders in action but can’t make it down to City Hall, we air City Council meetings on TV and stream them on the web. That City brochure or poster you’re looking at? We likely produced it. But we’re doing even more behind the scenes. We’re always planning and collaborating with City leaders, departments, and outside organizations to make sure that residents, businesses and visitors of Minneapolis understand what is happening in Minneapolis city government and how it affects their lives.
