Dickinson, Stark County want police housing aid DICKINSON (AP) — Dickinson and Stark County are cooperating in an at-


tempt to get a slice of $3 million in grants to build housing for law enforcement officers. Dickinson city administrator Shawn Kessel said the city and Stark County


could qualify for financing up to eight housing units. Both apartments and homes could be eligible. Stark County Commissioner Jay Elkin said it’s difficult to recruit police officers


and sheriff ’s deputies to southwestern North Dakota because of a housing short- age caused by the region’s oil development. Stark County Sheriff Clarence Tuhy said the joint grant application could help


the community of Belfield, west of Dickinson. Tuhy said Belfield can’t hire its own law officer because there’s no place for the


person to live.

tion of a new camp for oil field workers capable of holding 500 people. A company called Five Diamond Fund Managers is developing the camp.


Spokesman Brian Hymel said if the project gets final approval, it will be built in two stages of 250 units each. Hymel said the company may want to build more units, depending on the


housing demand. He said the company doesn’t want to overbuild. The Dunn County Commission must give final approval to the project before


it can be built.
