Special Assessment Commission Public Hearing - News Flash

The City of West Fargo Special Assessment Commission will hold a public hearing at 5:30 p.m. Monday, July 12, in the Commission Chambers of West Fargo City Hall. During this meeting, the Special Assessment Commission will review the following projects that are being wholly or partially funded through special assessments:

Property owners in the improvement district have the opportunity to object to the proposed assessments in two ways. They may submit the objection in writing to the City Auditor (cityauditor@westfargond.gov or Attn: Special Assessment Objection, 800 Fourth Ave. E., Suite 1, West Fargo, ND 58078). Or, they may appear in person at the Special Assessment Commission public hearing. 

Information about these projects, including improvement district maps, can be found at https://www.westfargond.gov/1021/Special-Assessment-Projects. A list of proposed special assessments, along with the time and date of this public hearing will appear in the legal section of The Forum.

During the Special Assessment Commission public hearing, impacted property owners may attend and present their objections. Based on these objections, or new information presented at the public hearing, the Special Assessment Commission may alter the assessment allocations or confirm the list as it was published.

After this proceeding, a notice of confirmation and advertising of a West Fargo City Commission public hearing and appeal opportunity will be published in the legal section of The Forum. Individuals with property within the special assessment district who object to the allocations will have an opportunity to file a written appeal. Please note that only those property owners who submit a written appeal are also able to present their appeal during the West Fargo City Commission public hearing on the matter. 

At the conclusion of the public hearing, the West Fargo City Commission may determine if additional steps are required to adjust the special assessment allocation or confirm the special assessment list as presented. If a landowner disagrees with the decision of the West Fargo City Commission, they may appeal to Cass County district court. Following the confirmation of the special assessment list, the amount due can be paid without interest for 10 days. After the 10 days, the balance due is subject to interest.
