Join Washington State Ferries meeting on Jan. 9

Join the Washington State Ferries for a public meeting with the Washington State Ferries executive team at 4 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 9 at Brickworks in Friday Harbor. WSF will first present a 30-minute overview of their just-released long-range plan, which charts a course for a more reliable and sustainable future for ferries over the next two decades. The remainder of the meeting will be devoted to questions and discussion on any ferry-related topic.

The meeting is co-hosted by WSF and the San Juan County Ferry Advisory Committee. We are especially honored that WSF will be represented by Amy Scarton, assistant secretary and head of ferries, and her entire executive team. The department heads will all be there including the directors for operations, terminals, vessel maintenance and construction, planning and communication, IT and finance. This is a rare opportunity to have questions answered, and comments heard, by the folks who make the decisions.
