Guemes Island Ferry Public Open House Scheduled for January 3

Skagit County Public Works is proposing adjustments to ferry fares in 2023. A consulting firm, KPFF Consulting Engineers, has been hired to provide services for a rate study for the Guemes Island Ferry system. The study—which is scheduled to begin in January 2023—will evaluate the current fare structure and make recommendations for rate adjustments planned for 2023. Skagit County seeks to implement electronic fare collection by the end of 2023. Recommendations of the study will consider and prioritize the future of fare collection.

In advance of this undertaking, the County is seeking feedback from the public. A public open house is scheduled for Tuesday, January 3 from 3:00 – 5:00 p.m. in the Commissioners’ Hearing Room at 1800 Continental Place in Mount Vernon.

A virtual option is also available for those who would like to participate. Use the following link to log into the meeting: https://bit.ly/SkagitBoCCMtg.
