ASTORIA, Ore. (AP) - The Astoria City Council has passed a resolution publically opposing an energy company’s $6 billion terminal and pipeline project.

The Daily Astorian reports (https://bit.ly/1OeENMs ) that the City Council voted 4-1 Tuesday to oppose Oregon LNG’s project and to urge local, state and federal officials to deny the project.

Oregon LGN has applied for development permits in the city of Warrenton, where city commissioners have been advised by legal counsel to avoid discussing the project and to forward any emails about the matter sight unseen to the city manager so they can remain objective.

Warrenton’s planning staff has recommended that the permit applications be approved with conditions to ease traffic and public works problems that may be caused by the terminal and pipeline project.
