Mayor - Mark Windschitl

Mayor Mark Windschitl
Mark Windschitl was first elected to the position of Mayor by Special Election on January 19, 2010 and has been re-elected twice since then.  The Chaska City Council and city staff have worked well together during this time to develop a reputation for keeping Chaska taxes as one of the lowest in the metro area.  They also look forward to many future developments and events that are in the works, including the Ryder Cup at Hazeltine National Golf Club in 2016, named as one of the top four sporting events in the world. 

Mark currently is a full-time Assistant Chief of Operations for the St. Louis Park Fire Department.  He has served as Interim Fire Chief, and  along with the former Fire Chief, were the leads on the recent building of two new fire stations in St. Louis Park which came in under budget and on time.

Mark has responded to numerous local, regional and national incidents, including; acting as one of two Chiefs sent to an area southwest of New Orleans, Belle Chasse in Plaquemines Parish after Hurricane Katrina. The area was about 80 miles long and 40 miles of that was devastated. They provided fire services, handed out food and water, and rendered assistance to the only fire department operable after the hurricane.  On two separate occasions Mark went to Moorhead during the floods of 2009 where he worked alongside the Moorhead Operations Chief in charge of sandbagging and monitoring operations.  During the 35W bridge collapse, Mark was the Logistics Chief for the incident.  He was also in charge of the Strike Team that assisted with forest fires in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area known as Ham Lake and he has helped out during the devastating floods in Zumbro Falls, MN.

At the close of 2013 Mark ended a two year term as President of Hennepin County Fire Chiefs Association.  He is the current Chairperson of the SW Mutual Aid Joint Operations, which is a group of cites that work together regularly at major incidents.  This committee coordinates training, equipment purchases, and reviews ways in which their cities can work better together, share costs and finding ways to save money.

Mark is very active in the Chaska community as well, having co-chaired two State Amateur Baseball Tournaments at Chaska Athletic Park, been a co-owner of a small local business, past employee of the Chaska Public Works Department, and retired from the Chaska Fire Department after 21 years of service.  He lives on Mallary Lane in Chaska and is the father of three children and a proud Grandpa to four grandchildren. He was recently engaged to Connie.  He may be contacted at mwindschitl@chaskamn.com or at 612-237-4188.


Council Member Alex Young - Ward 1


Alex Young is a lifelong resident of Chaska.  He atttended Chaska schools from Kindergarten through graduation at Chaska High School.  He completed his education at St. John's University with a business management major and a minor in communications.  He purchased the family house where he and his sister grew up at 3860 Co Rd 140 a few years after college graduation.  Alex and his wife Bridget are now raising their three daughters, Rya (9), Tesh (4),  and Ivy (2) in the house.  So technically he has never moved!

Alex is Vice President of Development for MSP Commercial, a Twin Cities based commercial real estate development and property management firm.   He supervises the development of projects, and works with contractors and architects to help clients build their businesses, develop their markets, and flourish in an ever-changing economy.

His entire family and extended family have been very involved in the community since his parents moved to the Chaska area in 1974.  Giving back to the community is what Alex was raised to do. His initial involvement on the Planning Commission came about because of the annexation process of the former Chaska Township.   The residents in the area wanted some kind of representation and he agreed to do it.  Alex served on the Planning Commission as a member for five years and was the Chair for four years.

When an open seat came up on the Council in 2013 he threw his hat into the ring. He was ready to make the jump from advisory position to policy maker.

Alex can be contacted at 952-448-9200 or Ayoung@chaskamn.com.

Greg Boe Council Member

My wife, Debbie, and I reside at 2287 Clover Field Drive, within the Clover Ridge neighborhood. We are pleased to have called Chaska home since 1996.

I am a Program Manager within the Community Services Division of Scott County Government. This division oversees a wide variety of areas, including planning and land use, parks and open spaces, public works, transportation, environmental health, and building inspections.

I have enjoyed representing the residents of Ward II on the Chaska City Council since January 2009. Over the years I have also had the opportunity to serve on the Chaska City Planning Commission (1998-2008), the Carver County Planning Commission (2007-2009), the Jonathan Association Board of Directors (2004-2007), and the SW Transit Commission (2008 to 2013). I am a member of the Chaska Lions Club, and I enjoy helping with various local community improvement projects. As a hobby, I operate the official reporting station for the National Weather Service within the City of Chaska.

I believe that we are fortunate to live in one of the best small towns in Minnesota, but there are always things that we can do to improve our community. Please feel free to contact me, to share any questions, concerns, or suggestions that you may have about our wonderful city. I can be reached by phone at 952-361-4251, or by email at gboe@chaskamn.com
