West Fargo taxpayers may end up footing part of the bill for a proposed community center, a facility, that's being labeled very, very expensive.

A private group approached the city, interested in starting an aquatics center. City leaders want to get the school and park districts involved to make the center, more community friendly than just a pool. Details on size, cost, and location aren't known until a feasibility study is done. Construction would start as soon as possible.

Barb Erbstoesser – West Fargo Park District: “That could be something that could be used at a lot of different levels, meetings, gyms, aquatics, competition swimming. Really it's endless at where we could be with it and so we just want to hear what the public has to say about it.”

The building could be paid for through fundraising and tax dollars. City commissioners will look at the plan Monday.
