WILLISTON, N.D. - Thursday, crew camps in Williston's city limits lie vacant after an ordinance forced them to close Wednesday. Owners, however, aren't giving up the fight.
The Target Logistics' legal team has filed a request for a new injunction to stop the city from closing them down.
Benjamin Tymann has asked Federal Judge Daniel Hovland to update the original lawsuit against the city to include ordinance 1050. The ordinance passed unanimously two weeks ago.
Tymann's argument is that despite the changes the city made, there are still bigger issues that need to be addressed. Target believes the city is favoring local apartment and hotel owners against out of state man camp owners. The city doesn't agree.
"I am disappointed that it's going on like this. The ordinances are in place and we are going to handle this like any other ordinance that is in violation right now," says Howard Klug, Williston Mayor.
Hovland has yet to make a ruling on the matter.
