Dec. 3rd, 2019: Whatcom County Council Regular Meeting

On the agenda will be the 2nd public comment on their expected approval of an 8th vote to reinstate the “emergency moratorium on Cherry Point Industries.”

New organization “Whatcom Coalition for Economic Growth” The purpose of this organization is to support and defend the industries at Cherry Point which provide a valuable economic resource to thousands of Whatcom County families and businesses. To stay informed and get involved please sign up for their email notices. They will soon have more social media resources that feature the many ways we all benefit from these industries.

The City of Bellingham is hiring a Climate and Energy Manager for an annual salary of $80k - $95k. If the City of Bellingham  is not “all-in” on the Climate Action Task Force’s recommendations to go 100% fossil fuel free in 10 – 15 years, and the candidates running for the council and mayoral races said so—then what’s the rush to create this brand new FTE. The COB has a lot of needed capital expenses to fund. Is it wise for them to grow the budget and the bureaucracy with a new city department at this time?
