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.

Public works director Monte Meiers tells the Williston Herald that he recently hired two workers. One was living in an RV park and the other was living in a car.
