The County shares news about a ferry-related County Council meeting taking place on Thursday morning.
San Juan County Council announced today that a special meeting will be held on Thursday, Oct. 6 at 9 a.m. to discuss the Washington State Ferry system. Council will be joined by the co-chairs of the County’s Ferry Advisory Committee, Jim Corenman and Ken Burtness. The group will address recent concerns regarding disruptions to ferry service and advocacy efforts.
“This is an opportunity to come together and have an open conversation about what has been happening for WSF and how we are able to continue working with WSF for the best possible service, given system-wide constraints,” said Council Chair Christine Minney. Minney is also the Council liaison to the FAC.
The FAC provides study and recommends resolutions in ferry transportation matters that affect the San Juan Islands. The board consists of seven members serving four-year terms. Members include one representative from each of the ferry-served islands, one member representing an established ferry-user group, another representing persons or businesses using or depending upon the ferry system for commerce, and one member from the local legislative body.
The public is invited to attend the meeting in person or online.
