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!



The 2016 Recycling dates for Truman residents are listed under Important forms below.  The recycling rules are listed under the residents tab.




There is a phone scam going on in Truman.  The phone caller asks you to donate for the new ambulance in Truman.  DO NOT donate to the caller.  The new ambulance is ordered and is being paid for with funds already designated for this rig.


The fire department and ambulance department mailed a letter to you on October 1 asking for donations for equipment.  That letter is legitimate and your financial support is appreciated and can be mailed back in the envelope enclosed with the letter.


If you have any questions please call Truman City Hall at 507-776-7951.     Again DO NOT respond to the phone call.



TRUMAN ACTIVE LIVING PLAN:  This plan is dedicated to promoting, encouraging, and increasing walking and biking in the City of Truman. With meeting facilitation by the Region Nine Development Commission, the Truman Active Living Team participated in a series of three meetings from April through August 2015 to complete an active living plan for the community.  These meetings consisted of defining active living, determining community visions and goals, and identifying barriers and challenges to walking and biking in Truman.  To view the whole plan, click below.
