Meeting Monday on proposed Ferndale fire annexation

Anyone interested in learning more about the city of Ferndale’s proposed annexation into Whatcom County Fire District 7 can attend a special district meeting Monday, Sept. 8.

The meeting will start at 7 p.m. at Station 46, 6081 Church Road.

The meeting will be an informational public hearing about the potential annexation, which would bring Ferndale into the fire district. The city currently contracts with the district to provide fire service within city limits. The annexation wouldn’t affect taxpayer costs or the services city residents receive.

If the district’s board of commissioners approves the annexation, it will be on ballots to be voted on by district and Ferndale residents in February.
