WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) — Williams County officials have fined a Texas company $2.6 million for illegal temporary housing.
The Williston Herald reports that Houston-based Stallion Oilfield Services failed to follow conditions of a permit
County zoning investigator Kameron Hymer says Stallion was originally approved for 25 units in 2011 but had placed more than twice the amount of units at the site.
Hymer says the company has been attaching five and six units together and calling them one unit. The company has been ordered to remove the extra units.
Officials say if the company fails to pay the fine and doesn't remove the units by Dec. 30, the county will assess additional fines for all 54 units currently on site.
