Public Notice Minnesota

In 2014, the Minnesota Newspaper Association launched mnpublicnotice.com – an online clearinghouse for Minnesota public notices. All notices posted on the site have also been published in Minnesota newspapers.

MNPublicNotice.com is a centralized, online location for searching, viewing and printing an aggregation of Minnesota public notices. The MNA Board of Directors believes that this new service will make an important statement that newspapers are doing everything possible to serve the public by both printing and publishing online public notices in newspapers widely distributed in the community and also aggregating all public notices in a searchable format on the Internet.

Users can search notices by keyword, date, newspaper, county or city, at no charge. The site also includes a custom “Smart Search” feature, available for a subscription fee that allows users to have selected notices delivered automatically to their inboxes as they are posted.

Public notices inform citizens of the everyday activities of government.  From government spending to developing new policies, public notices provide a wealth of information about issues facing communities such as building projects, foreclosures, zoning, liquor licenses, public meetings, school-related issues and much more. Public notices are essential to democracy and an informed citizenry. Without public notices, citizens cannot properly and adequately make informed decisions.
