The Wayzata City Council is comprised of a mayor and four council members. 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.
City Council meetings are open to the public and are televised live on WCTV cable channel 8. City Council meetings are also available on-demand within 24 hours of meeting on the WCTV website.
Information About Emailing City Council Members
Members of the City Council enjoy hearing from the citizens of Wayzata and value their input. Please be aware that the email you send to a Council member is subject to the Minnesota Government Data Practices Act. It may be available to anyone making a request for it, and it may be made part of the public record if it is directed to a matter before the Council. In addition, Council members are called upon to review and decide certain matters before them in a fair, open and judicial manner, weighing all of the relevant facts and applying City Code appropriately. In an effort to maintain fairness, objectivity and an open mind, Council members may not be able to respond to your questions and concerns about a particular matter that is before them. If you are interested in or concerned about a matter before Council, you are encouraged to attend the public hearing and open meetings in which the matter is discussed. Notices of these hearings and meetings are posted on the City website and on the City’s calendar available at City Hall. If you have questions about a Council agenda item, or a process of the City, you can direct those questions to the City staff responsible for working on those matters. A directory of City Staff is available here.
