City Documents

City Council Meeting Minutes are the official record of Council proceedings and are only available on this site after they have been approved by City Council. 

Resolutions are written documentation for any council action of a temporary, routine or administrative nature. These documents and more can be found through Red Wing's LaserFiche system.


The City of Red Wing uses Laserfiche as its electronic document imaging system specifically geared toward records management. Many cities use the software to store and preserve old and current documents. 

Retention Schedule

The City of Red Wing follows a General Records Retention Schedule adopted September 12, 1994. The retention schedule follows city, state and federal regulations on saving and destroying documents.

The City of Red Wing also utilizes Laserfiche as a means for the public to easily access old and new information.

  • If over 75 pages, a message may appear saying print only the first 75 pages will print. Click ok.
  • To search within the first 75 pages, press at the same time "Ctrl" and "F."
