City of Ferndale staff say over 3,000 people enjoyed free recreational activities put on by the city in Ferndale parks last summer. More of the same is being planned for this year.
A survey has been created by the city asking what type of events and activities people want to participate in.
According to City of Ferndale Communications and Recreation Coordinator Riley Sweeney, events were produced last year with a budget of $12,000. This year’s budget is $15,500. “The extra funds this year will be used for increased advertising and making the events a bigger draw with bigger name bands, better materials, etc.,” Sweeney said in an email.
