The Mayor's Message - 07.13.2020

City of Fargo facilities have begun implementing the “Reopening Fargo Phase II” Comprehensive Plan, which includes several modifications from Phase I to help continue safely offering services to residents. Some highlights include increasing the capacity of the Commission Chambers from 25% to 50%, resuming in-person meetings within City Hall and departmental reception doors opening within City Hall.

As part of the City of Fargo’s “Reopening Fargo | Phase II” plan, all three Fargo Public Library locations opened to the public today, with regular summer hours. Numerous safety measures are in place in an effort to keep the public and staff safe.

Fargo has been nationally recognized by LendEDU as one of the most budget-friendly cities in the country for renters. Fargo had rent-to-income ratio of 18.5%, which helped propel it to the top of the rankings.
