City Blogs


News and Views from City Staff

The City of Eden Prairie provides information and interacts with the public in a variety of ways. CITY BLOGS is where members of the community can access even more information directly from City Manager Rick Getschow, the Police Department and Fire Department.

City Manager Rick Getschow’s blog features his reflections on the City’s operations, accomplishments and happenings, and timely topics related to city government in general.

The Police Department blog includes posts and photos from various members of the department, and provides an opportunity for the public to learn more about the people who work there — their stories, their lives, their work in Eden Prairie and their thoughts on topics from driving to dogs.

The Fire Department blog includes posts about fire safety and prevention, emergency preparedness and fire service-related community outreach programs.
