Boards & Commissions

The City of Winona is governed by its Home Rule Charter which was approved by the city’s voters in 1968. Under this system, the Mayor and City Council are responsible for development of overall policy while the City Manager is responsible for the implementation of this policy in the city’s day-to-day operations.

Citizen Involvement

Many boards and commissions comprised of citizen volunteers are utilized by the City in development of recommendations on policies and issues, which will affect the well being of the Winona community. This section is intended to provide pertinent information relative to each of these boards and/or commissions and a brief outline of their structure and function.

Public participation continues to be an admirable tradition in the City of Winona. It is up to each of us to continue this tradition and, in so doing, to guarantee that Winona will always be an excellent place to live, to work, and to grow.
