WEST FARGO — For those who have an opinion on the city of West Fargo's infrastructure and what should be installed or replaced in the next five years, residents will have a chance this week to voice those opinions.

The West Fargo City Commission will have a public meeting at 1 p.m., Thursday March 10 to discuss the city's capital improvement plan.

"Staff will be available to present and ask questions," City administrator Tina Fisk said.

The meeting will be held in the commission chambers at City Hall, 800 4th Ave. E.

City Spokeswoman Melissa Richard said a preliminary list of of projects that may be considered for the next five years will be presented.


The city's core infrastructure plan includes a look at the city's water, sewer and storm water systems to find what may need to be repaired, replaced or expanded to accommodate the fast growing population. The plan also addresses the sewer system and attempts to minimize local flooding by tracking the Sheyenne River models and downtown redevelopment.

Although the meeting is open to the public, it is not a special or regular meeting of the city commission. The commission will not be voting at this meeting.
