City to pull support if project stays eastFor now, the West Fargo City Commission will continue to support the Red River diversion project.

Maybe these guys should have known what exactly was going to happen before supporting it. Just like the tax. NOBODY knows when, how, or if this diversion will happen, but wanted us all to be in favor of it and vote for a tax on it. Mattern needs to quit being a puss and doing what Fargo wants and stand up for his own people, especially when most of his residents did not want this tax or diversion in the first place. He has already lost my vote in the next election.

Has anyone else noticed that Denny has not been heard from for a long time regarding this issue? Call me suspicious but I think something is up… I don’t trust anyone involved with this diversion (City of Fargo, Corps of Engineers, Metro Flood Commitee, Cass County Engineer or the Cass County Commission). They are all self-centered and self-serving.

I’m not from west fargo, but I didn’t vote for either of the sales tax measures. Why would we vote on something when there isn’t a plane in place? Now what happens with this fund if this doesn’t happen. We should have a special election and pull the tax now before it goes to some other use. If you looked @ where the votes came from for these taxes it was all south fargo and I would bet 100% of them are in the flood zone or in the new developments that were build in the natural flood area.
They keep changing what they are doing with this. In the end it will end up hurting more people in the surrounding communities then it will protect in the city. Fargo may be a large hub area for the surrounding communities but if fargo goes under it will be those small towns that will welcome the business to come in to them. Seen that with the Grand Forks flood. Large influx into the schools, businesses hiring people and still making a profit. Even afterwords many stayed in those small communities and they flourished.
