The mission of the Minnetonka Charter Commission is to oversee the city’s charter, which is the city’s constitution. The charter establishes the city’s form of government and specifies certain rights and responsibilities. As an independent body, the charter commission represents citizen viewpoints and considers and recommends appropriate revisions to the charter, balancing the best interests of city government and the citizens.

The commission is comprised of up to 15 members. Members serve four-year terms and are appointed by the chief judge of the Hennepin County District Court. Meetings are held when necessary.
