Williston, ND - The City of Williston’s fall Clean Williston event is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 24 from 8 a.m.-12 p.m.

In the event of inclement weather, Clean Williston will be held on Saturday, Oct. 1, and this change will be announced on City of Williston social media and http://www.cityofwilliston.com.

This year’s fall event is making one notable change, moving locations from Davidson Park to the Williston Public Works facility.

“Clean Williston is a community event to help clean our city and a great way to show your pride for Williston.” said Kenny Bergstrom, Williston Public Works director.

Clean Williston and is held biannually in the spring and fall and continues a more than 20-year tradition of beautifying Williston.

“It’s fall clean up time again! The citizens of Williston have supported this event very well in the past, and I hope they do so again this year,” commented Williston Mayor Howard Klug. “We had some tough weather earlier this year for this event, but I believe we can really get out there and clean up Williston this fall.”
