BELLINGHAM, Wash. – An ambulance fee increase and a new boat inspection fee are being considered by the Whatcom County Council.
The council will host public hearings on both two proposals at tonight’s meeting.
Whatcom Medic One wants to increase its ambulance fees for Bellingham to be more like those that Ferndale charges.
That would double the fee from $390 to $675 to around $550 to almost $1,000.
The other is a new $10 season pass fee for kayaks and canoes on Lake Whatcom and Lake Samish.
Motorized boats will be charged the same $50 as last year.
