WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) — People residing in RVs in the oil boom town of Williston have been given a temporary reprieve.
City commissioners delayed a decision on a proposed RV ban, after an overflow crowd opposed it at a meeting on Tuesday.
Many opponents, in-cluding Shannon Michels, who was representing Kum & Go convenience stores, told commissioners the city will lose its workforceif the ban is approved.Seventy-three percent of her employees live in campers because they can't afford $2,500 for rent, she said.
