Work begins on $6.1 million housing project in Watford City for essential medical personnel


WATFORD CITY, North Dakota — Officials have broken ground on a $6.1 million housing development in Watford City for essential medical personnel in the growing oil patch city.

Gov. Jack Dalrymple joined officials with McKenzie County Healthcare Systems and the state Housing Finance Agency for Wednesday's ceremony.

The project is getting financial help through the state's Housing Incentive Fund and the state-owned Bank of North Dakota.

McKenzie County Healthcare Systems CEO Daniel Kelly says the housing project will help attract and retain health care workers when it's completed in about a year.
