Valley City, ND (WDAY TV) -- Valley City says it needs more rental units, and fast.

Apartment buildings in the city are near capacity, after flood buyouts displaced more than 50 people. Also, John Deere is adding more than 100 jobs to the area.

So far, no one has purchased a residential building permit this year. The city has started a task force to tackle housing needs.

David Schelkoph, Valley City administrator, says, "part of the problem with all of this is the information, the help that's available. What is it, where can you grab it, what kind of grants can you get, if applicable, for this kind of work?"

Developers can contact the Economic Development Authority with questions.
