Fargo city leaders pulled out their shovels to break ground on the new $22 million City Hall.

The plans for the one hundred and fifty thousand square foot facility include conference rooms for each department and spacious hallways for more seating space.

The new building will also incorporate energy efficient practices such as sensor lights to save energy in unused rooms.

The mayor says the building is a reflection of the growing city of Fargo.

"Our current city hall which is right next to us was completed in 1958.  As a reference the population of our community at that time was about 47,000 people. Today we have about 120,000 residents in Fargo, an increase of 155%" says Mayor Tim Mahoney, City of Fargo.

You can keep an eye on the construction.

It'll be live streamed on the city's website.
