MOUNT VERNON — Skagit County will seek $8.5 million in state funding to complete its electric ferry project, according to a legislative agenda…


Skagit County Commissioners and staff met with lobbyists from Gordon Thomas Honeywell Governmental Affairs, for an update on the county's priorities including funding requests for repairs to the historic Skagit County Courthouse, an all-electric replacement to the Guemes Island Ferry, and a pilot program combining shelter and behavioral health services. 

The Skagit County commissioners voted Monday to implement a surcharge on Guemes Island ferry tickets in order to fund a replacement ferry.

Maintenance on the Guemes Island Ferry will take longer than expected, pushing the ferry’s return to service back to April 7.
