The Mayor and Council are responsible for the efficient operation of the city government through policies and ordinances that are carried out by the Council-appointed City Manager.
Specifically, the Council is responsible for budgeting, taxation and management of City property. The Council is accountable to the residents of the Edina.
The Council holds other special meetings from time to time. Meetings are aired live on Edina Community Channel 16 and are replayed at 3 a.m. and 11 a.m. on Sundays and Wednesdays, and at 7 p.m. on Tuesdays and Saturdays until the following meeting. They are also available online.
Agendas for meetings are available before each meeting. The agenda includes time for public hearings on subjects such as proposed ordinances, planning and zoning matters, assessments and public improvements. Routine business is placed on a “consent agenda,” which is considered and approved by one motion at the beginning of each meeting. Any member of the Council may remove an item from the consent agenda for discussion and action. Other agenda items include community comment, bid awards, recommendations and reports, and comments by Council Members and the City Manager.
To conduct business, the Council must have a quorum. Three Council members constitute a quorum. A majority vote of the Council is needed to approve most motions, ordinances and general resolutions. Improvement Hearings for which petitions meeting statutory requirements have been presented require three affirmative votes. When there is not a petition, four of five affirmative votes are required. Street or easement vacations for which petitions have been filed require three affirmative votes. However, vacations originated by the Council require four affirmative votes for approval, as do zoning ordinance actions. The second reading of any ordinance may be waived with four affirmative votes.
