Article: Billings City Council Rejects Letter to Corps on Coal Port Study - Billings Gazette

Nov 20th, 2012

The City Council once again passed on the opportunity to ask the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to include Billings in an environmental impact study of West Coast coal ports.

Although no formal decision was made at the council's work session Monday night, council members agreed to instruct the city staff to take no action on the subject for now.

That direction was given after a two-hour process during which the council debated the issue and heard 14 people speak at a public hearing — four of them opposed to Billings' involvement in the study and 10 in favor.
