The lead officer in Lake Elmo is the city administrator, who is appointed by the City Council. The administrator supervises and coordinates all department activities, handles citizen inquiries and requests, implements policies of the City Council and enforces all ordinances. Additional responsibilities include preparation of the meeting agenda and materials for the City Council on policy matters, and preparation of the annual budget for Council consideration.

The City of Lake Elmo outlines specific regulations on everything from animals to swimming pools in its Code of Ordinances. Although every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of the material published online, the only official edition of the City Code is the printed version maintained by the Deputy City Clerk.
