Ferndale School Board will discuss putting the bond issue back on ballot

At their next regular meeting on Tuesday, Ferndale School Board members will discuss what to do next after a bond issue proposition on the 2018 General Election ballot came close but failed to garner the 60% super majority voter approval needed.

The agenda for the regular meeting of the Ferndale School Board on November 27th includes a discussion among the board members about whether to run the bond proposition again in 2019. Ferndale School District Superintendent Dr. Linda Quinn and Assistant Superintendent Mark Deebach are expected to report their findings after the recent bond issue failed.

Quinn said during a recent town hall meeting, comments received since the election would be considered by the board members as they planned their next steps.

Later on in the agenda is a resolution for school board members to vote on that would authorize putting the $112 million bond ballot proposition back in front of voters in a February 2019 special election.

Other early opportunities for special elections include dates during April and May 2019. According to Quinn, the cost to the district to be on a special election ballot is “upwards of $50,000.”

Whatcom County Fire District 7 officials say they are planning to ask Ferndale area voters to approve a $3.5 million bond issue to replace aging equipment and apparatus during a special election in April 2019.

The Ferndale School Board will meet at 7pm in the Vista Middle School library on Tuesday, November 27th. The public is welcome to attend.
