FERNDALE, Wash. — Officials with the City of Ferndale announced today that following yesterday’s unanimous approval by the City Council of Mayor Greg Hansen’s proclamation of a local emergency in the City of Ferndale, city facilities will be closed to public access beginning tomorrow, March 18th, but city operations would continue to operate normally and be fully staffed.

Out of an abundance of caution, and consistent with State and Federal guidelines, effective  9am Wednesday, March 18th, the City of Ferndale will close City facilities to the public, with the exception of Municipal Court.  All City operations remain fully functional and fully staffed during this closure. 

City of Ferndale press release (March 17, 2020)

Building closures are part of social distancing measures put forth by health experts and included in state and federal guidelines in the national effort to minimize the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

Options for paying City of Ferndale utility bills include 1) by phone, 2) using the payment drop-box at City Hall, 3) online at the City’s website and 4) paying by mail.

The Online Permit Center remains the best way to apply, pay, request inspections or check the status of permits. Building Permit field inspections will continue to occur.
