Lummi Island 2016 Dry Dock Survey Due January 31, 2017

Remember the September 2016 dry dock, when 3 weeks of maintenance was done on the Lummi Island/Whatcom County ferry system (Whatcom Chief and docks)?  Now’s the time to give your input via the dry dock survey developed by PLIC (Protect Lummi Island Community).  Now is the time to do this, as Public Works is already planning for dry dock 2017.

Beth Louis, president of PLIC, sent out this reminder, aided by Paul’s Brown Betty alert service (note that paper surveys also are available):

Please remember to complete a Dry Dock questionnaire to help improve 2017 Dry Dock planning.  The questionnaire can be found on Survey Monkey at  or in hard copy at the Post Office and Islander Store.  Questionnaires are due by January 31st. Responses will be summarized and submitted to LIFAC along with suggestions for improvement in March.

Kind regards,
Beth Louis

The survey is direct, short, asks good questions and includes room for open-ended comments. It’s not anonymous, which is absolutely correct as non-anonymity prevents duplicate entries that would totally wreck the validity and utility of the data. It also requires each person surveyed to take responsibility for their opinions rather than hiding behind a mask.
