LEITH, ND (KFGO AM) -- Leith, North Dakota has taken steps that town leaders say are aimed at halting efforts to turn the community into a white supremacist stronghold.
Last night, the city council approved a moratorium on new buildings or mobile homes until zoning laws can be updated.
The moratorium will be in place for six months.
The city council also held its first reading on a uniform building code that requires homes to have water and sewer service and a requirement that prevents tents and campers from being in the city for more than 10 consecutive days.
White supremist Craig Cobb has been buying property in Leith and recruiting others with racist views to move to town so he can create a voting majority and take over.
Mayor Ryan Schock is hoping the new rules send a powerful message to Cobb---that he and his followers have to abide by the law.
He says right now, they're acting like it's their town.
