FARGO, ND (KFGO AM) -- The plan to build a new Fargo City Government Center downtown has received unanimous approval from city commissioners.
Commissioners voted to accept the recommendation from a 13 member citizens committee to make the four block area around the current city hall the site.
City Adminstrator Pat Zavoral requested a building committee be appointed to work with an architect to come up with a specific location and design for the building.
The cost of the new city hall ranges from $10 million to nearly $14 million based on some early concepts.
City leaders say the 60 year old city hall is in bad condition and cramped and costs to make repairs and improvements wouldn't make sense.
