This morning, Fargo Mayor Dr. Tim Mahoney presented his 2021 State of the City to members of the Fargo Moorhead West Fargo Chamber of Commerce.
In his address, Mayor Mahoney reviewed the impact of COVID-19 on the Fargo metro, including the acknowledgement of those lost to the pandemic, our healthcare workers on the frontlines and the impacts experienced by the metro business community. He also highlighted the resiliency of the local economy and the strong trajectory for growth potential in 2021. Through unforeseen and unprecedented challenges, the Fargo community has continued to shine and Fargo is poised for a monumental upcoming year.

- Striving for Everyday Excellence
Mayor Mahoney remarked, "The state of our City is a strong Fargo; I have incredible optimism and excitement for what the new year has in store. Among many things, 2020 taught us the incredible people of Fargo are capable of handling any challenge. I want to express my appreciation to our residents, visitors and businesses. I would also like to thank every member of Team Fargo, who handle adversity and change with grace, strength and a steadfast commitment to serving our residents. The people of this community are the catalyst making Fargo an incredible place to call home. You are the reason that we, together, are Far More."
