West Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - The West Fargo Police station is strapped for space. Mayor Rich Mattern says the commission has agreed to seek out an architect to see the cost of building a new station.

The department currently shares its building with City Hall.

The idea would be to build a three story structure and have the top floor open for future growth, which Mattern says would save money in the long run.

Mattern says the police department and city hall are growing.

Rich Mattern, West Fargo mayor: “The idea is to build sort of a three floor structure with, for now, maybe perhaps with the third floor not being used but available in the future, which makes sense to me. Pay a little bit more now so you don't have to pay a lot more down the road.”

A possibility for a new location would be on land the department owns just east of the current station.
