Port considers coal train resolution
Additional discussions are expected July 17
Tuesday, July 10, 2012
Port of Camas-Washougal Commissioner Bill Ward would like the port to have “a place at the table” regarding discussions about coal trains.
Ward said during the July 3 port commission meeting he wants the port to be included as a party of record in future discussions about the potential impacts of increased rail traffic.
Attorney Tim Harris said a letter could be written, requesting that the port be included as a party of record.
Ward said he was interested in how a "coal train parade" could affect traffic mobility, as well as quality of life and economic development.
Additional discussions and a vote on a coal train resolution could occur at the next port commission meeting Tuesday, July 17, at 5 p.m., in the port office meeting room, 24 S. "A" St., Washougal.
