O’Reilly’s Opens In Stanley

Another national chain has opened a business in Stanley with the opening of O’Reilly Auto Parts in the Westview Plaza. Located just west of Tractor Supply, the business opened its doors for the first time on Saturday, July 19. With stores in 42 states, O’Reilly is one of the top five parts dealers in the nation. Stanley’s store will cover everything from car and light duty truck parts and supplies to things needed for heavy duty trucks as well. Manager Dave Lee says that is one of the biggest needs he sees in the area. With the increase in truck traffic, those drivers often find themselves with the need to replace things like hoses and clamps. They are then tasked with finding the closest place to get them and he wants O’Reilly to be able to fill that need. O’Reilly’s carries a wide range of brands and products for cars and trucks including Wix, Fram and AC/Delco filters. They carry Performance auto parts and specialty tools. They also carry all oils from the O’Reilly brand through the professional Penzoil brands. With this brand new store, staff will be looking to see what their customers need and doing everything they can to meet those needs. They will be carrying on hand the generalized things for heavy duty trucks as well as the normal offerings of the car and truck parts in stock. Customers that need something not in stock should be sure to ask the staff. They have access to nearly anything that a customer could want. Based on those customer needs, they could also look at what they need to carry in stock. They also have purchase agreements with all types of vendors to get anything a customer may need. When asked why open a store in Stanley, Lee says that it was chosen   Login or Subscribe to view full stories.

Renaissance Zone Committee To Hold Public Meeting Tonight

After many months of work, Stanley’s Renaissance Zone Committee is ready to bring their proposal to the public. With the support of the City Council, the Committee has already made presentations to both the Stanley Public School District and the Mountrail County Commissioners, garnering letters of support for the project. That is required as the Renaissance Zone can mean tax breaks and these two taxing agencies need to approve the idea as it moves forward. The next step is to make a public presentation on the process. That will occur Wednesday, July 30 (tonight) at 7:00 p.m. at Stanley City Hall. The Renaissance Zone Act was created by the 56th Legislative Assembly making it possible for cities to make such a zone within their jurisdiction. The area is typically in the central portion of a city consisting of residential and commercial properties that could or should be revitalized and redeveloped to attract businesses and residents. It provides for certain types of tax exemptions and credits to encourage such an investment in the properties. The size of the zone is dependent upon the size of the city making the application. Typically for communities like Stanley that are less than five thousand in population it may consist of an area of up to 23 blocks. Stanley’s committee has decided to designate the area that is the original City including the downtown area and the blocks surrounding it. Stanley’s proposed zone is actually 26 blocks at this point. With an allowance for tax exempt government buildings, they may be able to expand to the full 26 blocks. The committee has created a development plan that describes vision, goals and objectives and the broader plans for the city. It describes the process and selection criteria as well as how the zone will be managed and promoted. The tax credits and income exemptions within the Renaissance Zone can make improving a property attractive to the owner. There is an option for a single-family residence tax credit of up to $10,000 in each of the five taxable years. A taxpayer that purchases, leases or rehabilitates a commercial property is allowed to exempt part or all of the income derived from the business or  Login or Subscribe to view full stories.

Dalrymple Sends Additional Highway Patrol Troopers To Western North Dakota

Gov. Jack Dalrymple recently announced that the North Dakota Highway Patrol has graduated 15 troopers from the Law Enforcement Training Academy. Thirteen of the new Highway Patrol troopers have been assigned for duty in North Dakota’s oil and gas counties. “Putting more troopers in the field is part of our ongoing commitment to the continued safety of our growing communities and roadways,” Dalrymple said. “These troopers will enhance our visibility and will also provide additional support for local law enforcement agencies.” The 63rd Legislative Assembly appropriated $3.8 million to place additional troopers on the state’s roadways, primarily in western North Dakota. Six of the new troopers who graduated today from the state’s Law Enforcement Training Academy will be stationed in Williston and two in Dickinson. The remaining troopers will be stationed in Watford City, New Town, Killdeer, Parshall, Minot, Rugby and Velva. The Highway Patrol is authorized 168 sworn officers and the department has dedicated 65 troopers to the state’s 17 oil and gas counties. Since 2011, the state has added 20 trooper positions to enhance the state’s law enforcement, primarily in western North Dakota. “Today is an exciting day for our   Login or Subscribe to view full stories.
