Rice Lake by the Numbers


Rice Lake was founded as a township in 1870.  After portions of the township had been annexed by the city of Duluth, the residents began the process to be recognized as a city.  On August 20, 2015, Administrative Law Judge Barbara J. Case signed an Order of Incorporation which allowed the township of Rice Lake to convert into the city of Rice Lake.  In an election held on October 13, 2015, Rice Lake residents elected a mayor and members of the city council. The township was formally organized as a city on October 22, 2015.

The city of Rice Lake, with its recreational amenities and rich rural character, strives to provide a well-balanced, secure, and enjoyable living environment for citizens of all ages. As a friendly, quiet, family-oriented community, the citizens of the City appreciate and respect the needs of their neighbors. Families will raise their children in safety, peace, and quiet, away from the congestion and noise of the city. The City will work together with its residents to sustain moderate commercial, residential and recreational growth while making sure not to alter the existing character of the City. Proactive decision-making and the provision of services on the part of the City will maintain the existing quality of life.
