Hillsboro’s former Wells Fargo Bank branch building.

The Traill County Board of Commissioners will meet in executive session Thursday, Sept. 16 to discuss buying the Wells Fargo Bank building in Hillsboro.

Wells Fargo Bank officials announced earlier this summer that they planned to shutter their Hillsboro branch location at 212 W. Caledonia Ave., at noon, Sept. 22 and sell the building after the closing.

County officials indicated after the announcement that they had interest in purchasing the property since Agassiz Valley Human Service Zone, which oversees social services in Traill County, rents office space for workers inside the bank building.

County Auditor Glenda Haugen told commissioners on Tuesday that county officials are continuing to gather information on the process that Wells Fargo Bank will use to sell the building.
