“The city of Williston has announced plans to annex 4,800 acres north of the city.
“City officials say the annexation is needed to keep pace with the region’s oil boom.
“The city currently occupies about 8,100 acres or about 12.6 square miles. That’s up from about seven square miles in 2006. The so-called ‘North Annexation’ would enlarge the city to more than 20 square miles,” via Forum of Fargo Moorhead.
