Watchdog group accuses a former West Fargo official of financial misconduct



West Fargo, North Dakota – A West Fargo watchdog organization is requesting further scrutiny of the city’s financial records after claiming to receive information from a former city administrator that demonstrates questionable business practices.

According to the group, Tina Fisk managed purchases of promotional gifts from her husband’s company totaling around $30,000, including caps, jackets, mugs, blankets, and other goods.

According to the group, the city purchased the items over a six-year period when Fisk served as the municipal administrator. She also held the position of city auditor.

Fisk resigned in the spring after being requested to do so.

The group claims to have information from unnamed city employees as well as outside sources.

“Employees have been threatened,” West Fargo taxpayer activist David Withee said. “They’ve been told if they’re found sharing information with anybody outside the city, they’d get fired.”

The claims made by the group received no immediate response from the City of West Fargo. They did cite a report from the Cass County State’s Attorney’s Office in support of their explanation that no charges would be brought because of inadequate proof.
