(West Fargo, ND) -- A local business owner is seeking a spot on the West Fargo City Commission in order to find a solution to access to her establishment.

SheyWest Garden Center owner Jodi Kallias says the road outside her business needs a left-hand turn lane or similar solution to provide safe access to the Garden Center.

Kallias has went in front of the City Commission numerous times to find a solution, but commissioners voted down the effort.

Current West Fargo City Commissioner Mark Simmons stopped by WDAY Radio's The Jay Thomas Show and noted that he and Kallias had met earlier Tuesday and talks are ongoing to try and work out a solution.

Kallias sent out a message on SheyWest's Facebook account following this week's commission meeting. You can view her full statement by clicking here.

The terms of Commissioners Mandy George and Simmons end in 2024, which would be the soonest Kallias could run for City Commission in West Fargo.
