Commission Investigates Western Petroleum

Posted: Updated:

On June 25, the Williams County Commission met with the special state attorney and the zoning investigator to discuss the details of the pending fine on Western Petroleum.

The situation began when the staff investigated the company's conditional use permits. They discovered that part of the permits had been terminated since Sept. 6, 2012 and the other since Sept. 6 2013. Pilot Logistics has since bought the company, which has been out of compliance on 40 RV's and seven mobile home units since that day in 2012. The civil penalty for being out of compliance is $1,000 per day for each violation, so the county commission used that as a benchmark to determine the fine.

"We would rather work out something that's reasonable to both parties. So, there was a motion that was past for $1.8 million to be levied against Pilot 15s," says Dan Kalil a chairman for the Williams County Commission

Kalil added the company has 10 days to decide what to do next.
