About the City Council
Much like the vast majority of cities in Minnesota, the City of Winsted is an Optional Plan A municipality, which vests all legislative power in a part-time, elected City Council comprised of the Mayor and four City Council Members.  The Mayor and City Council adopt an annual budget, approve expenditures, appoint staff, and ratify all policies and ordinances of the City.
 
The Mayor serves as a member of the City Council and does not enjoy any additional powers or authorities outside of presiding over meetings of the body and serving as the official representative of the City.  Each member of the City Council maintains a single, equal vote.  The Mayor and City Council Members are elected to two and four year overlapping terms, respectively.  All City Council Members serve the community at-large.
