Selection process for city clerk and treasurer to be voted on in Ferndale
FERNDALE- The people of Ferndale will have the chance to determine if they want to start voting for the positions of city clerk and treasurer, or if they would rather continue letting the city council appoint them.
The City of Ferndale used elections to determine the City Clerk and City Treasurer until 1972. For the last 42 years, those jobs have been appointed positions. Now, city officials have discovered that a general law city in California, like Ferndale, must use elections to determine those positions unless the public votes to make them appointed occupations. In June, the residents of Ferndale will vote to decide which method they will use moving forward.
