Fergus Falls, Minn. (WDAY TV) - Some Fergus Falls businesses are worried about losing their customers. The reason is no parking.

Downtown business owners and managers say people have two main lots to choose from when parking in the area, but now city officials have told them one of those spots could be disappearing.

Businesses received a letter informing them that the city is considering selling a lot for a business to build. U.S. Bank is the most recent to show interest.

“A lot of them have a 30 minute lunch hour so if they have to go circling around town looking for parking to not be able to have that right there, which would just be a huge loss.”

Before anything moves forward, the city council will vote on an appraisal for the lot.
