West Fargo Mayor Calls Out Diversion Authority: They’re “Bullies”

The Mayor of West Fargo calls the Diversion Authority “bullies” in a battle over special assessments for the F-M Diversion.

Mayor Rich Mattern says the formula used to count votes by property owners is unfair to private property owners.

West Fargo commissioners voted 4-1 last night against the special assessments.

He says the results are stacked in favor of Fargo and Cass County Governments.

Even with West Fargo’s opposition, the special assessment already has enough votes to pass with Fargo and Cass County’s “yes” votes.
