The city of Minnetonka awards preference to qualified veterans and spouses of deceased or disabled veterans, subject to the provisions of applicable Minnesota statute.
To qualify for preference, you must have served on active duty in any branch of the armed forces of the United States, have been honorably discharged, and be a citizen or resident alien of the United States. The military service must be certified by the United States secretary of defense as active military service and a discharge under honorable conditions must be issued by the secretary. Veteran’s preference may be used by the surviving spouse of a deceased veteran and by the spouse of a disabled veteran who, because of the disability, is unable to qualify.

- The applicant meets the minimum qualifications,
- Supporting documentation is provided, and
- The claim for preference is approved.
