Chad Anderson, with the North Dako- ta Crop Improvement and Seed Association, noting the close work- ing relationship with the university system, presented a check for $25,000. Mayor Howard Klug also spoke during the ceremony. Wil- liston was an early contributor, pledging $250,000 through its STAR Fund earlier in the year for the seed facility. “It is just us and us,” Klug said. “That is where it is.” Klug explained that the sales tax support- ing the STAR Fund is collected from ev- eryone, whether in the oil industry or farming sector of the economy. “It doesn’t take us long to figure out a 'project like this,” Klug said. He said the facility has probably received the largest grant from the STAR fund pro- gram. That’s because the facility will help the whole region. Part of what Williston has been working toward is developing itself as a regional resource. “Whatever we can do to make the region work, whether it is with your group, or working with the oil companies, we work with anyone,” Klug said.
