GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — Grand Forks County is chipping in for an effort to woo companies in the western North Dakota oil patch.

The Grand Forks Herald reports that the county commission this week agreed to contribute $10,000 to the Bakken Initiative. The $125,000 campaign is aimed at marketing the eastern North Dakota city's infrastructure to new or expanding energy companies.

The Grand Forks City Council earlier voted to spend $75,000 on the initiative that is named after the oil-rich Bakken formation.
