    I am relatively new to the Ferndale area. I am curious as to why Ferndale, alone among Whatcom County School Districts, failed to support its levy.

    Utility rates a factor in choosing to not fund schools?

    That’s like saying you should but a Chevy over a Dodge because of the cost of tea in China.

      No – it’s like saying that in addition to the unaffordable amount they proposed picking our pockets for we have escalating utility rates to help subsidize water usage by developers.

    It’s getting too expensive to live in Ferndale! Very high property taxes and expensive water bills from the city! When is the school district and city going to realize this? Also our elementary school is closed in the north BELLINGHAM area because the school district didn’t maintain the roof and seem to have forgot about us, so why would we support their high taxes?

    I’m disappointed that the levy failed. How else are we to keep poor people out of Ferndale?? At least the teachers pay and retirement payouts aren’t hurt by this bond failure.
