HOQUIAM, Wash. (AP) - Hoquiam Mayor Jack Durney says he’s changed his mind about oil terminals and now wants city councilmembers to consider a moratorium on allowing new facilities.

KBKW-AM radio station in Aberdeen says Durney also proposed a land-use change to prohibit wholesale liquefied petroleum storage facilities in any of the city’s zones.

The mayor says in a memo to councilmembers that he can’t change what happens to three crude-by-rail projects already proposed in Hoquiam. Those projects have submitted permit applications that are under environmental review.

Durney says the city could prevent other facilities from being built.
