WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) — The dollar value of building permits issued in Williston has set a record with four months to go in the year.

The city Building Department says that through August, the dollar value of building permits for 2010 stood at $66.1 million. That eclipsed last year's 12-month record of about $44 million.

The Williston Herald says 436 permits were issued through August, up from 257 in all of last year.
