The City Council’s Committee of the Whole will conduct a public hearing at its regular meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 18, on the proposed omnibus government structure ordinance.
If approved, that ordinance would create a new operating structure under the voter-approved executive mayor-legislative council form of government.
In November 2021, Minneapolis voters approved the new form of government, which explicitly defines the mayor as the City’s chief executive officer with the City Council continuing as the City’s legislative and primary policy-making body.
The proposed omnibus ordinance would formalize the City’s administrative operating structure under the mayor’s authority, including three executive positions that would effectively serve as a mayoral cabinet to help in organizing and managing the day-to-day work of the City, according to officials.
The Committee of the Whole held a markup session Oct. 4 to consider amendments to the proposed ordinance.
