Federal court rules against Port on harbor fee

A federal court has ruled against the Port of Astoria over a harbor fee charged to large oceangoing vessels that pass along the Columbia River. In an attempt to help fund pier maintenance, the Port in 2019 enacted a $300 fee on oceangoing ships over 250 feet long heading upriver. The Columbia River Steamship Operators’ Association, which represents regional shipping interests, strongly opposed the fee and warned of the potential for legal action.
