FARGO, North Dakota — Bids for a proposed new City Hall in Fargo have come in 10 percent higher than expected.

There were more than a dozen bids, and the lowest was $30.4 million.

Mayor Tim Mahoney says he's disappointed and that the engineering team will now have to work with architect Terry Stroh to determine where costs can be cut.

Stroh says the next step is to go to a couple of the lowest bidders and determine if anything can be adjusted. Potential cuts include a geothermal heating and cooling system.

Final decisions rest with the City Commission.
