FERNDALE - City residents will have at least three opportunities in the coming weeks to ask questions and comment on a bond measure for a new library.
Ferndale voters will decide on April 23 whether the city should issue a $550,000 bond to fully fund construction of a $5.4 million library building near City Hall. If 60 percent of voters approve, the city would establish a property tax to repay the bond. The owner of a $250,000 home would pay $11.86 a year.
City Council is considering a resolution Monday, April 1, to show support for the ballot measure. The public is invited to comment on the resolution at the meeting, which starts at 6 p.m. at the Community Resource Center, 5694 Second Ave.
Mayor Gary Jensen will participate in a panel discussion about the new library from 6 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, April 3, at Central Elementary School, 5610 2nd Ave. Jensen will take part in another meeting on the library at the Ferndale Senior Center for its members, noon to 1:30 p.m. April 8.
