Happy Friday, Williston! ICYMI 👀, here's a look back at the moving process for this year’s Community Christmas Tree donated by Marilyn McGinley! 🌲

A Colorado Blue Spruce estimated to be over 70-feet tall and between 18,000 and 21,000 pounds, the tree was moved on Monday, November 22 to its holder on the corner of 26th Street East and 2nd Avenue West. 🏗 🤩

This project was made possible by Dacotah West Crane Service, 11 Bravo Property Services LLC., and City of Williston Public Works. Drone footage was captured by Alliance Consulting.

And as promised, the tree made it onto McGinley’s Christmas card this year! 😉🙌

The tree will remain up until early January, weather permitting, and individuals are encouraged to continue placing ornaments.

❗️Downtown Commercial Zones ❗️

Beginning tomorrow morning, Saturday, December 18 at 3:00 am, Public Works will plow and haul snow ❄️ from the downtown commercial area.

If additional snow accumulates to 3 inches or more, Public Works will plow emergency through streets (approximately 30 avenues and 25 streets), beginning with routes to the hospital and fire stations. Highest traffic and population areas will be prioritized first. View an interactive GIS map of the City's emergency through streets, or snow routes at 👉 https://bit.ly/WillistonSnowRoutes

As a reminder, all trailers, boats, campers, etc. found parked on the street in designated ❄️emergency snow routes ❄️ are subject to citation. If your vehicle is parked on a snow emergency route during a winter weather event it should be moved immediately.

Additionally, per City Ordinance No. 1055, unless you are in the downtown district, ❌please do not❌ dispose of snow from private property onto public right-of-way, i.e. City streets and sidewalks. Doing so can result in a fine related to equipment and man-hours required for snow removal.

With today’s snow, please keep the following in mind when it comes to snow removal in the City of Williston:👇

❄️Every snowfall is different so we ask for your patience and understanding knowing priorities will vary!

❄️In the event of a major winter event, City of Williston Public Works will plow emergency through streets first, beginning with routes to the hospital and fire stations.

❄️There are approximately 30 avenues and 25 streets that are emergency through streets. Public Works will prioritize the highest traffic and population areas first. View an interactive GIS map of the City's emergency through streets, or snow routes at 👉 https://bit.ly/WillistonSnowRoutes

❄️Following emergency through streets, Public Works will haul snow from the downtown area, 11th Street, and Million Dollar Way (2nd Ave W). However, if heavy snow returns, the emergency through streets will become a priority once again.

❄️Snow emergency routes will be plowed or hauled after any single snow event with an accumulation of three inches or more.

❄️As a reminder, all trailers, boats, campers, etc. found parked on the street in designated emergency snow routes are subject to citation. If your vehicle is parked on a snow emergency route during a winter weather event it should be moved immediately.

If you have questions, please contact Public Works at 701.577.6368.

Congratulations to Williston Fire Department's 🚒🚑 Captain Justin Champion and Lieutenant Stephen Clark for receiving the Fire Officer (FO) designation by the Center for Public Safety Excellence's Commission on Professional Credentialing! 👏🧑‍🚒

CPC credentialing is a professional designation that recognizes career excellence and offers strategies for continuous personal improvement for those in the fire service.

“What Captain Champion and Lieutenant Clark achieved demonstrates their personal commitment to continuous improvement,” explained WFD Fire Chief, Matt Clark. “This designation is not a requirement, and they weren’t asked to get this; rather, they sought it out for themselves. This designation reflects their commitment to our department and community, and I am proud of them.”

There are 2,668 credentialed officers across the United States, and of this, only 585 Fire Officers.

In addition to receiving the FO designation, Captain Champion was also awarded the Michael Worthington Scholarship. 🧑‍🎓Named for a long-time CPSE board member, the scholarship is given to only five individuals annually who, like Mr. Worthington, exemplify continuous improvement.

Congratulations, Captain Champion and Lieutenant Clark! 🙌
