Voters will decide whether to form the district – essentially agreeing to having their property taxes raised to help parks and recreation – and will elect the five commissioners to govern it should it be approved.
The three-day filing period for commissioner candidates is Wednesday, Aug. 10, to Friday, Aug. 12.
As proposed, three of the commissioners will serve three-year terms and two will serve one-year terms.
Forms can be mailed to or taken to the Auditor’s Office, 311 Grand Ave., Suite 103, Bellingham 98225. The deadline is 4:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 12.
