The City of St. Louis Park uses social media to further the goals of the city and the missions of its departments where appropriate.

Current platforms used include Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and Nextdoor. As computer technology evolves, the city may use new platforms as available and necessary. Posts are generally managed by the St. Louis Park Information Resources Department, though other city staff members may interact with social media as necessary.

The city has an interest in preserving online decorum, meaning social media pages will be moderated. We will hide posts that contain vulgar language, personal attacks of any kind, or offensive comments that target or disparage any ethnic, racial, religious or other groups.

We also reserve the right to delete spam, posts that advocate illegal activity and posts that infringe on copyright.

Comments posted to city social media pages may periodically be shared with city council. Please note that the City of St. Louis Park does not share information gathered through its social media sites with third parties for promotional purposes. However, any information you provide to the city is subject to the Minnesota Data Practices Act. This law classifies certain information as available to the public upon request.

The information expressed on a city social media page does not necessarily reflect the opinions and position of the City of St. Louis Park government or its officers and employees.

If you have questions about the city’s use of social media, please contact St. Louis Park Communications & Marketing Manager Jacqueline Larson, at 952.924.2632 or
