The West Fargo City Commission will hold a special meeting at 9 a.m. Wednesday, March 25, to discuss holding alternative pubic meetings as well a moratorium on alcohol sale ordinances.
The City Commission will meet at the commission chambers in City Hall, but the building remains closed to the public in an effort to thwart the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, the meeting will be livestreamed here, on the West Fargo Pioneer.
The Commission will discuss alternatives to public hearings that would respect social distancing guidelines set by public health officials, as well as the potential to hold virtual commission meetings. The next regular City Commission meeting is scheduled for March 30.
City Attorney Jon Shockley also proposed adopting a temporary moratorium on the retail sale of alcohol that would allow licensed restaurants and bars to sell alcohol with curbside, to-go and delivery orders.
The city of Fargo passed a similar ordinance on Monday that allows curbside, to-go and delivery sales of alcohol within Fargo city limits for a period of 30 days.
