West Fargo Park District special assessment districts 2019-1 and 2017-2 may be paid without interest from Oct. 15, 2020, to Oct. 26, 2020.

The West Fargo Park District confirmed the special assessments for the following projects during the Wednesday, Oct. 14, 2020, meeting:

Information about these projects is available through the West Fargo Park District. Once the West Fargo Park District confirms the special assessments, the City of West Fargo certifies the special assessment amounts to Cass County the following day.

The special assessment balance for each projects is now available to view per property at https://www.westfargond.gov/518/Property-Information. Certified special assessments may be paid interest-free for the first 10 days after they become certified by contacting the City of West Fargo Finance Department at (701) 433-5300.
