Periodically, MAT attorneys, have compiled laws pertaining to townships. The most recent version was compiled in 2017. Each township received one copy of the updated Law Book in 2017-18.

One of the most useful features is the 2017 Law Index (27 pages). This index references the 2016 edition of the Minnesota Statutes. Statutes passed in 2017 were not codified at the time of printing. Any statute changes are noted in the Summer issues of the Minnesota Township Insider.

The 2017 Law Book Index (27 pages). The index is a PDF of the statutes and contain links to the Office of the Revisor of Statutes website.  To use the index, you must have an active internet connection open to view the actual statutes. This index attempts to list the statutes most applicable to towns. Not all statutes that may impact a town are included here. Due to page limitations, statutes related to town elections (Chs. 200 – 212) and partition fences (Ch. 344), are not included in this book, but are available online. All statutes may be found on the internet at: Minnesota rules, case law, attorney general opinions, or federal laws are not included in the index.

Additional copies of the Township Law Book are available at Minnesota’s Bookstore. The retail price for books sold by Minnesota’s Bookstore will be $38.95.
