Now Accepting Applications for City Council Vacancy

Front Row: Councilmembers Paul Shuey, Herb Porter, Kate Bishop and Ramon Llanos. Back Row: Councilmembers Ryan O’Larey, Erin Gunter, Mayor Greg Hansen and Councilmember Ali Hawkinson

Applications are now being accepted to fill a vacancy on the Ferndale City Council due to the resignation of Councilmember Ramon Llanos.

The vacant seat will be on the November 2021 ballot as a new 4-year term; therefore, the appointed Councilmember will serve only until the November 2021 election is certified, at which point the candidate who prevails in the election will take office and serve for the rest of 2021.

Applicants should plan to attend the January 4, 2021 regular City Council meeting, during which they will have the opportunity to introduce themselves and be briefly interviewed by current Councilmembers. The selected applicant will be sworn in that evening and will begin to serve immediately. For instructions and an application packet, please click here. Applications will be accepted until 5:00 p.m. Monday, December 7.
