Site Policies


This website is intended for use by the general public as a convenient way to access the information and services provided by the City of Hopkins. As a communications tool, it will:

  • provide community members and others with the first and most correct source of information about Hopkins
  • provide customers with credible, timely information about the City and its services
  • provide updates, notices, and other current information not adequately served by traditional communications methods

The City of Hopkins has made every effort to ensure the accuracy of the information provided on its website. However, several factors that are beyond the City's control (including unauthorized modification of electronic data, transmission errors, browser incompatibilities, information that has been cached on the local computer or storage device, or other aspects of electronic communication) can affect the quality of the information displayed on this website. For that reason, the City does not guarantee the accuracy of the information provided on its website and is not liable for reliance on this information.

To make sure you are viewing the most recent version of a webpage, the City recommends clearing your cache (check your browser's help files for more information) or refreshing the page. Because updates, corrections, or additions may have been made to a webpage since you last viewed it, you may wish to confirm information (such as dates and meeting locations) immediately before the event. If you are concerned about the accuracy of an item, call the City’s Communication Line at 952-548-6364 or submit your concern via the City's online contact form.

Privacy Policy

The protection of individual privacy is a concern to the City of Hopkins, and is governed by Minnesota Statutes Chapter 13, (Government Data Practices Act.) The City of Hopkins has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate its firm commitment to privacy. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for this site.

Information you provide to us

The City of Hopkins does not keep any personal information about you or your visit to our Internet site unless you have specifically supplied it to us. For instance, you may have supplied us with information as part of a request for information. Similarly you may have sent us an email or left us a message in some other electronic format. In cases where you have supplied us with information we will treat such information in accordance with the requirements of the Minnesota Government Data Practices Act. This means that it will be treated in the same way as written forms of communication. In many instances it will be considered public information available to the public upon request. The City may withhold personal information from disclosure only to the extent permitted by law, for example the name of an individual who complains about someone's property is private data.

  • total number of visitors to our site
  • types of computer
  • systems used to access our site
