Public hearing on West Fargo budget to be held at 5:45 tonightWEST FARGO – West Fargo Commissioners are set to approve a final budget for 2011 tonight.
Prior to the vote, residents can comment during a public hearing at 5:45 p.m. at City Hall, 800 4th Ave. E.
The $32.3 million preliminary budget includes a $1 increase for monthly garbage collection and an extra 50-cent charge for every 1,000 gallons of water used.
Since the mill levy will remain the same as 2010, Property taxes won’t increase, assuming individual property values haven’t changed.
Also during tonight’s commission meeting, there will be public hearings to discuss approval of liquor licenses for two new bars seeking to locate in West Fargo: JL Beers, 810 13th Ave. E., and Bar Nine in the Pioneer Center. Those public hearings also are scheduled for 5:45 p.m.
