Williston OKs anti-ice gear after 2 airplanes slide: Sloulin Field International Airport (KISN), North Dakota

WILLISTON, N.D. (KFGO-AM)  Williston is spending more than $51,000 on anti-ice equipment after two airplanes slid off an icy taxiway at Sloulin Field International Airport this week.

Airport Manager Steven Kjergaard tells the Williston Herald that the equipment was going to be in his 2016 budget request, but he asked for the money early after the Federal Aviation Administration and SkyWest Airlines inquired into the incidents.

Kjergaard says luckily no one was hurt and the planes were not badly damaged. But he says the city needs to show the FAA and airlines that it's proactive.

City officials approved the spending on Tuesday.
