What is Oakdale's governmental structure?

Oakdale is a statutory city and, as such, follows Minnesota Statutes. Oakdale operates under Plan B, which means that the mayor's powers are equal to the other members of the city council, with the exception that the mayor serves as presiding officer at meetings and also executes official documents. Oakdale's mayor and city council members are non-partisan and all serve the entire community. They each serve four-year terms and elections are held in even-numbered years.
