Grand Forks officials are looking at helping the oil boom town of Dickinson process building permits
GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - Grand Forks officials are looking at helping the oil boom town of Dickinson process building permits
Dickinson is unable to keep up with the demand for building permits because it's having trouble recruiting and retaining city staff.
Grand Forks inspectors would review building plans for Dickinson under a joint-powers agreement.
The agreement says the city would be able to limit the amount of reviews it does for Dickinson depending on available staff. Dickinson would pay $55 per hour for commercial plan reviews, $25 per hour for administrative support and 50 cents a mile for any necessary travel.
A Grand Forks committee is slated to discuss the agreement on Tuesday.
