City of Truman....Welcome Home!

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!

In the City of Truman, we are defined less by boundaries on a map than by the sense of shared values our residents hold dear. Small town values, guided growth, preservation of historical, cultural, and natural heritage are just a few of the core principles that makes City of Truman a wonderful place to call home.

The city is interested in learning what you would like to see made available online.  How often do you use the city website?  Is the material provided useful?  Is it easily accessible?  What could we add, change, or remove to make the website better?
