HURON, S.D. (AP) - The Huron City Commission is discussing housing for the expected influx of Dakota Access Pipeline workers.

KOKK radio reports that Greater Huron Development Corporation president Jim Borzsich says Custom Touch Homes in Madison is working with some individuals to place small one or two bedroom living quarters in places around the area.

The 1,130-Dakota Access mile pipeline would move 450,000 barrels of crude daily from the Bakken oil patch in western North Dakota to an existing pipeline in Illinois.

Darwin Sawvell says he has land that he would like to use to house pipeline workers, but he doesn’t want to spend nearly $17,000 to plumb in utilities without assurance a variance would be approved.

City Planner Ralph Borkowski says there’s no way to temporarily suspend zoning laws through a waiver.
