New Williston Mayor on Future

Posted: Updated:

An active mayoral campaign season in Williston ended with one candidate having a sizeable lead ahead of competitors.

Nearly 4,000 Williston residents cast votes at the polls yesterday and Williston mayor-elect Howard Klug says he was surprised when three-quarters of the vote were in his favor.

Klug says his campaign stayed positive and he says the voter support shows the values in Williston.

Mayor Klug took action on his new title early this morning -- meeting with the planning and zoning commission then meeting with city staff.

He says first on the agenda will be to find someone to fill his former seat on the city commission.

Then he hopes to shift focus to the upcoming legislative session -- looking at the budget and studies that show continued growth.

(Howard Klug, Williston Mayor-Elect) "What we're going to need for populations of 50,000 to 60,000, somewhere in that area. We're preparing things for the Governor's budget now. We've hired a firm to take a look at the over all plan for the whole city and stuff like that. We should be prepared. We should be ready."

The open commission seat will be a topic of discussion at a special city commission meeting in the next two weeks.
