The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality is fining a company that owned a La Pine gas station, saying the company was late in filing an annual report.
Fred Morrow Inc. is being fined $3,300, according to the DEQ. The gas station is at the La Pine Mini Mart at 52530 U.S. Highway 97. The company is required to file a report by Feb. 15 each year, but DEQ officials say it didn’t until late August this year. The company has until the end of the month to appeal the fine.
Fred Morrow of La Pine said he sold the gas station and convenience store two months ago. He said he plans to file an appeal with the DEQ.
