FRYBURG, N.D. (AP) - The zoning board in Billings County has tabled a decision on a proposed hotel for oil workers in Fryburg.

Morgan Chase Management wants to build two three-story wings onto the town’s old school, with rooms for 238 workers. The $11.3 million project has been scaled down from an earlier rejected proposal for a four-story hotel with room for 318 workers.

Some residents in the town of 20 people favor development in the community, but others worry about noise and traffic problems. KXMB-TV reports (https://bit.ly/16zuDnF ) that zoning officials on Thursday tabled making a recommendation to the County Commission, citing the need to gather more information.

The zoning board meets again in January.
