Reminder: WSF Public Meeting on Dec. 1

The following press release about the upcoming meeting is from the San Juan County Ferry Advisory Committee.

Washington State Ferries will be holding a public meeting on Thursday Dec. 1 from 5:30-7:00 PM at the County Council Chambers, 55 2nd Street in Friday Harbor.

This meeting, meant for both the San Juans and Anacortes, will be streamed live from the county website.

David Moseley, Assistant Secretary for Transportation and head of WSF, will attend along with members of his management team, and will make a presentation on state and local ferry issues. There will be ample opportunity for questions and feedback, either in person or via email for those watching the video.

Please attend in person if you can. “We know the evening ferry schedule leaves something to be desired, but it is important to make our voices heard and let ferries know what is working, and what is not,” said Jim Corenman, FAC Co-Chair. If you cannot attend in person, then please tune in to the video and send questions and comments via email.

The email address for questions will be announced and posted on the video page during the meeting.  Recent adjustments to the county video streaming should help those with limited bandwidth. See the FAC web page for more details. “If there are specific topics or issues that you would like to see covered, please send them to us via email to: and we’ll pass them on to WSF,” Corenman suggested.

More information about the WSF meeting is available here. The schedule and copies of the handouts are available here. The page on reservations is particularly interesting; click here for a copy (PDF file). “For the record, we’ve been repeatedly assured that there will be plenty of opportunity for public input before anything is decided,” Corenman reported.
