The mission of the City of Shakopee is to provide the opportunity to live, work, and play in a community with a proud past, promising future, and small-town atmosphere within a metropolitan setting.
The City of Shakopee is a “Plan A” city. This means that Shakopee operates on a weak Mayor-Council plan, so that administrative, as well as legislative authority, is the ultimate responsibility of the City Council unless the council has created an independent board.
Residents are represented by the mayor and four City Council members. The mayor serves a two-year term and council members serve four-year, "at-large" staggered terms. The mayor and each council member have one vote apiece. City elections are held in even-numbered years during the general election in November.
The city provides services in the areas of public safety, parks and recreation, planning and zoning, building inspections, public works (streets, sanitary sewer and storm sewers) and general administration. Daily operation of the city is performed by various departments under the supervision of the city administrator. City services are provided by a staff of 150 full-time, 200 part-time and more than 300 seasonal employees.
