In response to a ruling from the Oregon Land Use Board of Appeals, the Clatsop County Board of Commissioners will hold a new hearing on the Oregon Pipeline land-use application on Sept. 10.
The hearing was set after a special executive session of the board Wednesday.
The Astoria City Council came out of a closed door session Tuesday night and announced they will delay the sheriff's foreclosure sale of the Flavel properties until the end of August. A law firm in Portland will ask a Washington County judge to appoint a conservator to handle 89-year-old Mary Flavel's financial affairs and the city will be dealing with that person instead of Ms. Flavel. City Manager Brett Estes said at this point the city is just looking for a responsible party to take those properties over and the city views the appointment of a conservator as a positive development.
Tuesday night the Port of Astoria commissioners elected commissioner John Raichl to serve as President. Raichl was recently appointed to fill an open seat on the board.
Police in Central California have found three bright orange Tillamook cheese vans that were stolen over the weekend.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is hosting two webinars and a second open house in Astoria, Oregon, discussing the draft Environmental Impact Statement and the preferred alternative to reduce predation on juvenile salmon and steelhead listed under the Endangered Species Act by a large population of double-crested cormorants in the Columbia River estuary.
The law firm representing Mary Louise Flavel now says the 89-year-old is thought to be incapable of handling her own financial affairs and has issued a flurry of legal documents in an effort to stop the foreclosure sale of Ms. Flavel's properties in Downtown Astoria that have stood empty for many years.
For the first time in three decades someone else will be leading the city of Astoria after the November election. This morning Willis Van Dusen announced on KAST that he would not seek another term as Mayor. Van Dusen served six years as a city council member and the last 24 years as Mayor of Astoria encouraging a team approach to problem solving and community building.
Clatsop County Manager Scott Somers squashes a rumor that he is seeking employment elsewhere. KAST News has confirmed that Aaron BeMiller, Clatsop County Budget and Finance Director has resigned.
