The Economic Development Authority (EDA) is created pursuant to Minnesota Statutes Chapter 400. The appointment of an Economic Development Authority is intended to provide the City with a board comprised of representatives from both City government and private enterprise, capable of administering business incentives and other economic development measures. The EDA is the main economic development board for the City and is under the authority of the City Council. The primary responsibilities of the EDA are advisory functions relative to commercial and industrial development and redevelopment.
City Council advisory board and commission members are recommended by the Mayor and appointed by the City Council. Vacancies occur most frequently at the end of the year, however vacancies do occur throughout the year as well. If you are interested in being considered for appointment to this or any other advisory board or commission, please fill out the Advisory Board Application and return to the City Administrator's Office via email or at our office at 227 South Front Street. Please contact the City Administrator's Office at 507-934-0663 or email the City Administrator for more information. Members must live within the corporate limits of the City of Saint Peter.
