Welcome to the City of Truman, Minnesota. Truman is a community of 1,100 that lies twenty miles to the north of the Iowa border in south central Minnesota. Founded when the railroad came through the area in 1899, our city features an independent school district, exceptional quality of life, and a safe atmosphere to raise a family. We think you’ll agree that Truman is truly a great place to call home!


We are filing for Mayor and Truman city council positions. Filing is open from July 31st to August 14th at 5:00 pm. Anyone interested in filing in for these positions can do so at city hall during business hours.
