In Eden Prairie, government business doesn’t happen behind closed doors, and we strive to use the latest in technology to make government records available to the public.
We are proud of how we put your tax dollars to work and we want you to know about it.
We also keep the public informed of meetings where important decisions are made and make records of past meetings available. Below are public records that are currently available. This list continues to grow as we are able to add new technology and functionality.
