BEULAH, N.D. — Beulah’s City Council has agreed to lower fees for a company that wants to operate a crew camp for as many as 400 workers who will build a urea fertilizer plant in the area.
The Bismarck Tribune reports that the council agreed to reduce the $600-per-bed fee to $400 — splitting the difference with the Capital Lodge company, which had asked for the fee to be cut to $200.
However, the council this week refused to change the terms of the crew camp permit from one year to three years.
A company spokesman didn’t immediately know if Capital Lodge would proceed.
The proposal for the crew camp across from a residential subdivision has sparked objections from some residents who worry about increased crime, traffic and stress on city services.
