GLEN ULLIN, N.D. (AP) -- The western North Dakota oil patch town of Glen Ullin is banning man camps.
The Bismarck Tribune reports that the City Council this week voted to give final approval to the move. It means that anyone wanting to set up temporary housing units for oil field workers will need to ask the city for an exemption.
Talk of a man camp ban was prompted by fears that the camps would sap city resources.
