City Offices Closed for Thanksgiving Holiday

City Hall and the Police Station will be closed Thursday and Friday for the Thanksgiving Holiday, although first responders are always available when you call 911. City employees will be reachable by phone and email, as usual, once again on Monday, November 30th.

We urge everyone to make safe and responsible choices this Thanksgiving – help protect our community by keeping your gatherings small and if you meet with folks outside your household, please keep your gathering small, wear a mask and observe social distancing as much as possible.

We know this holiday will be different, but we want all of you to be safe and healthy throughout this holiday season. Thank you for doing your part to protect your friends and neighbors.

Ferndale Police Recover Stolen Mail

The Ferndale Police Department received multiple reports of mail theft on 11/22/2020.  In response to inquiries, lost batches of mail were recovered by residents and turned in to local authorities. Mail destined for addresses in Marysville, Bellingham and Ferndale was recovered.

Ferndale officers ultimately gathered two large bags of mail, dozens of opened packages and have begun contacting victims.

The Ferndale Police Department would like to remind everyone that during the holidays, there is often an increase in mail theft. With the increased use of online ordering due to the pandemic, it is especially common this year.  We encourage everyone to be diligent and check their mail daily.  This will reduce the likelihood of residents being victimized.

If you have any information to assist in identifying the vehicle or any suspects, please contact Officer Brown at (360) 483-5731 or via email at sbrown@ferndalepd.org.
