Emergency Order

The following is a statement from Clatskanie City Manager Greg Hickelman concerning retail gasoline services in the city.

The City of Clatskanie, operating under our Declared Emergency, has just issued an Emergency Order to allow retail self-service within the city. 

This decision was done to keep the gas flowing following one of the gas station owner’s desire to shut the station due to coronavirus fears. Our concern was if the station closed, that would cause the already heightened fear/anxiety/hysteria to go even higher (if that is possible).

The self-service option was the only way we could keep the station, specifically the gas sales, open. We issued this Order because gasoline (and diesel) are strategic commodities. We have to keep the gas flowing.
