Living by the Nooksack

The City of Ferndale is always looking for new and inventive ways to reach out to our community beyond the limitations of social media and this website. To bolster these efforts, the City Council approved a pilot program for a citywide newsletter to be distributed quarterly through utility bills.

This newsletter is used to inform the public about city programs, upcoming projects and local history.

All the material in each issue is available here as they come out for those who wish to access it.

If you’ve got feedback on this pilot program or ideas for future articles, please contact Communication Officer Riley Sweeney by clicking here or calling (360) 685-2353.
