There is no real chance of the Council’s hearing on the lease being changed to a post dry-dock date.
Enough of our elected Council representatives are waffling that there’s a real chance the 35 years lease will be disapproved. This would leave us in an even more unstable situation than we’ve been in the last two years. Some islanders are ok with that; others are not.
It is time for every islander to speak up and be heard on this issue. Please call or email the County Council with your opinion. Here’s their contact information. Be respectful, brief and simple in your request. And please, if you can, attend — and speak up at –the County Council meeting this coming Tuesday evening, in Bellingham, 7:00 PM at the Council chambers. Many of us already have car pool plans, and the PLIC Board will set up a ride share sign-up sheet at the Islander today.
This is it.
