Town Government
What is a township?

In the late 1700s, Congress ordered a survey that divided the territory that became Minnesota into 36 square-mile tracts of land called townships. When Minnesota became a state, its legislature created a process for those living within these “congressional townships” to organize themselves into a form of local government called town government in which a town board governs, but residents have direct input through the annual township meeting
