Good Morning,

Apologies for any confusion, the term department typically refers to a specific department (i.e. Health, 911, Regulatory Services) at the City of Minneapolis.
If you would like the search to include all email addresses at the City of Minneapolis it might be helpful to just ask for all email addresses, or for all employees with @minneapolismn.gov emails.
To process your request, please submit it using our online form here: http://www.minneapolismn.gov/datapractices/index.htm

You will then receive a reference number and can check the progress of your request on the same page.
