JAMESTOWN, N.D. (AP) -- Stutsman County has passed an ordinance regulating crew camps.
The ordinance restricts crew camps to agricultural, commercial and industrial zones and does not permit them in any residential areas.
It also requires that any crew camp have a 6-foot fence surrounding its perimeter, be 1,320 feet from any residence or occupied structure, have a $1 million surety bond for cleanup, show legible unit numbers and have all required health and safety permits,
Crew camps also will be charged a $300 annual administrative fee per bed in addition to property taxes on the land.
Zoning administrator Dustin Bakken says definitions for campgrounds, trailers and travel trailers will be added to the regular zoning ordinances to help distinguish them from crew camps.
