WEST FARGO (KFGO-AM) -- Candidates for West Fargo City Commission took part in a Chamber sponsored forum Tuesday.
Incumbent Mark Wentz and challenger Bradley Olson both support adding a sales tax to pay for the $120 million infrastructure projects set for the next 20 years. The two brought different ideas to the table on how to attract a work force. Olson says "the city needs to advertise as heavily as the oil patch does for job openings because we're losing people from here, who are moving out there". Wentz says "we'd work with high school kids, getting them to experience the trades and to get more involved so they know what's out there as they grow older".
Another hot topic was a possible water treatment plant in the future.
There are two seats available for West Fargo City Commission.
Incumbent Duane Hanson was not at the debate.
