FERNDALE COUNCIL TO VOTE ON EMERGENCY PROJECT
In an effort to speed up the process of an important project in Ferndale, City Council Members will vote tomorrow on an emergency project to open up Francis Creek.
The action comes in the form of a letter, which, if approved will go to Humboldt County Public Works.
It says that the area around the city’s Wastewater Treatment Facility has experienced flooding which may pose a threat to infrastructure.
A project to restore the Salt Rive—which includes Francis Creek, is scheduled for 2014. However, City Manager Jay Parrish said emergency measures are needed to protect the health and welfare of not only residents near Port Kenyon, but also the entire city.
