The City is deeply saddened to learn that former Ferndale mayor Jerry Landcastle has passed away earlier this week. Mr. Landcastle served as Ferndale’s mayor from 2003 to 2007. He oversaw the completion of the Centennial Riverwalk park and while Mayor, he did the detailed work updating our city code and financial processes to help us transition from a small rural community to the growing city we are today. He cared deeply about Ferndale and brought that passion to city hall. Never one to mince words, he was a straight shooter and we deeply appreciate his service to our community and as a veteran, his service to our nation.
