FERNDALE, Wash. — On the agenda for tomorrow’s City Council Finance & Administration Committee meeting is a resolution that, if approved by the whole council, would require the city to make purchases from local businesses whenever possible.
City Council Member Ramon Llanos is credited in the staff report with proposing the resolution.
City staff said in the staff report that it has been the practice of the City of Ferndale to purchase from local vendors although it has not been an official policy.
The staff report defines “local” as follows:
The City Council Finance & Administration Committee, made up of councilmembers Kate Bishop, Ali Hawkinson and Erin Gunter, will meet via online video conference at 9am tomorrow, Wednesday, April 15th, to discuss this and other agenda items before potentially bringing them before the whole council for discussion and/or approval during a regular City Council meeting.
The Planning & Land Use Committee and Public Works & Utilities Committee meetings, normally held along with the Finance & Administration Committee meeting, have been canceled.
