Mandatory Watering Restrictions In Effect June 1st through September 15th

Mandatory Watering Restrictions in Effect June 1st through September 15th

The City of Ferndale has implemented mandatory watering restrictions effective June 1st through September 15th. Residents with odd numbered street addresses are mandated to water only on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. Residents with even numbered street addresses water only Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Mondays are non-watering days to allow the City’s reservoirs to recharge after the weekend.

The mandatory watering restrictions do not apply to the following situations:

  • Drip irrigation systems or handheld watering
  • Watering of flower and/or vegetable gardens
  • Watering of outdoor potted plants and hanging baskets
  • Watering of newly planted lawns/landscaping

Following these restrictions will help residents save money on their utility bill, reduce the impact on the environment and help ensure the City’s utility system runs strong throughout the hot season.

With the installation of new COVID safety measures complete, the Ferndale City Hall and Police Station will be open to the public for full business hours, 8:30AM-4:30PM Monday through Friday, starting June 14th.

“We appreciate the public’s patience while we made the modifications necessary, and we are ready to once again assist our community in person,” said Mayor Greg Hansen. The reopening is well in advance of the statewide reopening, currently scheduled for June 30th for all public facilities.

City staff has continued to work throughout the pandemic, accessible via email, phone and video conferencing to meet the needs of the public. The city recently launched a new utility billing portal to allow for more transparency, allowing for even more remote access to city documents.

For more information about city facilities, please contact Communication Officer Riley Sweeney at 360-685-2353 or rileysweeney@cityofferndale.org.

New Online Utility Billing Portal Coming June 1st

New Online Utility Billing Portal Coming June 1st

The City of Ferndale is bringing you a brand new utility billing portal, coming live June 1st from InvoiceCloud. The new interface will be free to use and will allow utility customers to receive their bill through email, set up Autopay, access their payment history, pay online with credit/debit card or e-check, set up bill reminders, update contact info, pay by text, Apple or Google Pay, and review up to 24 months of past bills as they become available.

This new system will provide better transparency for the public ensuring that all have access to their account information.

This does not mean that customers must give up their paper bill. For customers who prefer paper bills and check payments, the City will gladly continue to process their payments. They may even receive the paper bill and then go pay online.

Utility customers will receive information on how to sign up for the portal through the mail, separate from their bill, in the coming month.
