WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - The man who has led Williston’s economic development efforts for decades is retiring.

Tom Rolfstad announced last week he will step down this fall.

Rolfstad was the executive director of Williston Economic Development from 1979 to 1985, and again from 1991 until now.

Rolfstad has overseen the growth of the economic development office from a single person to six full-time workers now in the department.

Deputy director Shawn Wenko is expected to succeed Rolfstad as executive director in the oil boomtown city.
