A message from Mayor Lindstrom - Update on City Hall Services

City Hall is closed to the public until further notice. All City services are available and staff will continue to provide them remotely as much as possible. The City Hall drop box is in place for residents’ use or you can call or email if you need in-person services. Staff at City Hall and the Post Office will wear masks and disinfect their hands and workplace surfaces before and after interaction with the public.

As we all navigate the relaxation of stay-at-home rules, my top priority is the health and safety of staff and residents.  We ask that all residents adhere to common-sense guidelines to protect themselves and others. 

  •         Wear masks that cover your mouth and nose in indoor public locations. For your convenience, disposable masks will be available at both entrances to City Hall;
  •         Wash hands frequently;
  •         Where possible, maintain a distance of 6 feet from others;
  •         Stay home if feeling unwell, running a fever, experiencing shortness of breath, or if you have had contact with someone suspected or diagnosed to have COVID-19.


Local State of Emergency/City Meetings

The Local State of Emergency remains in effect. Declaration of the Local State of Emergency allows Minnetonka Beach to request county, state and federal aid. During this time, all City Council, committee and commission meetings will continue to be held by video conference, as safe-distancing protocols cannot be maintained in the small City Hall conference room. 

Margaret Dahl Library and Ray Peters Warming House

The Dahl Library and Ray Peters Warming House remain closed.


Playgrounds and Swim Beach

The City is unable to close or monitor open spaces such as the City playgrounds and the beach. The City asks residents to act responsibly when using the playgrounds and beach by safe distancing, wiping down surfaces and wearing gloves. All gatherings should be fewer than 10 people.


Thank you for your patience and understanding during this challenging time.
