December 20, 2011

WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) — Williston's City Commission is mulling whether to buy a stake in a newly built apartment complex to provide housing for city employees.

The commission is expected to take up the proposal Dec. 27. Commissioners asked for a delay last week to consult other property developers.

Mayor Ward Koeser said the city could spend $300,000 to $350,000 to buy control of 12 to 15 apartments. They're part of a 36-apartment project being built by Valley City developer George Gaukler.

Williston city administrators say the idea would help them recruit new employees.
