History[edit]

On Tuesday, February 22, 1977 at 9:30 Reile's Acres was incorporated as a city by order of the Cass County ND Commission . With a population of 147 and has slowly grown ever since. In 1976, just before the incorporation, the new city had 31 homes with a total value of $164,248.00 or an average value of roughly $5,300.00 per home. Reile's Acres is named for Reinhold Reile who originally owned the land and had a farmstead on the site. Therefore, the city is properly referred to with the apostrophe in Reile's. The move toward incorporation came about when the development of Reile's Acres reached a point where the Reed Township Board could not handle the costs of road maintenance in the small, heavily populated area about a mile north and a mile west of Fargo. Residents of the Reile's Acres area said that through incorporation, the subdivision could get state and federal funds as well as tax money to take care of streets and roads.

On April 26, 1977 Reile's Acres held its very first election held at the Clark Zick residence. 52 of the 82 eligible voters participating in the election chose Jim Lutz mayor, with 37 votes, the city chose 4 council members that night as well. Clarence Paschka, Susan Cleary, Millie Tarieski and David Domier were the city's choices for 4 and 2 year terms.
