Minneapolis Quick Guide
Minneapolis, the "City of Lakes," sits astride both banks of the upper Mississippi River. Once inhabited by the Dakota Sioux, this city of parks and lakes is now a busy metropolis that seems to top lists of bests for everything, from being one of the world's five cleanest cities to being among the fittest cities in the nation.
Minneapolis is also a top technology destination, making it a great place to do business in today's high-tech marketplace. In addition to being the home base for major companies that include retail giant Target Corporation and Ameriprise Financial, the city's economy is driven by finance, industry, trade and transportation.
The Minneapolis City Hall is located at 350 South Fifth Street. For easy access to city services and information, residents within the Minneapolis city limits are encouraged to dial 311 to get the help they need. The service is available weekdays from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. Those living outside of the city limits can call (612) 673-3000.
