Statutory City

Minnesota law provides for two basic types of cities: statutory cities operating under the statutory city code and home rule charter cities operating under a local charter. The City of Victoria is a Statutory Plan B form of government. Plan B is the council-manager plan, with an elected mayor and four elected council members.

All policy and legislative decisions are the responsibility of the council. The council delegates the administrative duties to a city manager. The city manager is accountable to the council for the effective administration of city business in accordance with council decisions.

The law prohibits the council as a whole or any of the individual council members from interfering with the manager’s authority to hire employees. It also prohibits any individual council member from attempting to deal with or control any administrative person who is subordinate to the manager.

The basic listing of powers of statutory cities is in the law called the city code.
