Stark County considers fees for oil crew campsDICKINSON, N.D. — The Stark County Commission will consider changing its ordinance on camps that house oilfield crews to get more in line with fees charged elsewhere in western North Dakota's oilfields.
The Dickinson Press reports that if the county commission approves a fee, it would have to decide how the money would be used.
Stark County Planner Steve Josephson says the intent is to use the fee money to take care of safety and fire protection.
Josephson and other officials will present the county commission with a proposed fee ordinance early next year.
Counties and cities in the area charge a variety of crew camp fees.
