It is the Douglas County Seat and provides fire and sheriff protection to its residents in conjunction with Douglas County. The Town also prides itself on providing excellent trash pickup and water services to local residents and businesses; parks and park maintenance; streets, street sweeping and snow removal; alleys, sidewalks and street lights.

Five elected advisory Town Board members govern the Town. At regular meetings the Board reviews annexations, projects, signs, and items associated with the operation of the Town. The Board meets the first Wednesday of each month at the CVIC Hall. The meeting is open to the public and you are invited and encouraged to attend. Public Comment is heard prior to the action items each month. See Minden Town Board for more on the Town Board, as well as links to the agendas and minutes.
