Meet Our Mayor and Council

The City of Backus operates under the "Optional Plan A" form of government as set out in Minnesota Statutes, Chapter 412; Statutory Cities.


The City Council meets on the first Monday of each month at the Backus City Hall at 6:30 p.m.  If a legal holiday falls on Monday, the council will meet the second Monday of the month at 6:30 p.m.  


Members of the public are invited to attend.   A local report from the Pine and Lakes Echo Journal often attends the meeting and writes an article about monthly council proceedings for publication in the newspaper.
