Special Assessments

Special assessment financing is a method established in Chapter 40 of the North Dakota Century Code utilized by the City of West Fargo to allocate the costs of an improvement project to property owners that benefit from the infrastructure.

Examples of projects that most likely utilize special assessment financing are water lines and storage, sewer lines, storm sewer, road and sidewalk paving, and flood protection.
