The city of Williston is re-hiring the company it fired last month for falling behind in construction work on the new Williston Basin International Airport.

J.M. Marschuetz is constructing “Taxiway A” at the airport and was removed from the project in August when it became known the work would not be done to meet the opening date for the airport in just over a year.

At a special city council meeting today, city administrator David Tuan a new deal has been struck with the contractor.

(David Tuan, Williston City Administrator) “What you have before you is a modified agreement with Marschuetz going back to work with supplemental conditions to make sure they meet our program deadlines and the Taxiway A component can be completed not only on budget but on time.”

The new XWA – as the airport is known – is scheduled to open for business on October 10th, 2019.
