  • First steps toward new city hall taken

    Before there can be a new Williston City Hall there must be a plan.

    Last week, the Williston City Council voted to get the ball rolling when it agreed to pay more than $200,000 for Oelrich Construction to draft a design and prepare cost estimates for construction.

    Initially it was thought the cost for a new municipal building will cost in excess of $2 million, but last Tuesday it was agreed there is no way to discern actual costs until later.

    Factoring into that cost will be materials for inside and what will be used for the façade.
