2019 Sanitation Rates Released

The City of West Fargo has released the 2019 sanitation rates. Beginning Jan. 1, 2019, residential rates for single-family units will adjust from $13 per month to $17.50 per month. The rates were adjusted after an analysis of the current structure found the fees collected were less than the cost to provide the services. Multi-family buildings, commercial dumpsters and roll-off rental services will also adjust in 2019.
