FERNDALE, Wash. – Ferndale city leaders are considering a hike in the city’s gas tax again.
The city council is looking at putting a measure on the ballot that would ask voters to raise the tax on gas by a penny a gallon.
The same proposal last year initially received council approval, but was later rejected.
Council members will reconsider the issue once more on Monday.
Cities within 10 miles of the U.S.-Canada border can enact a special fuel excise.
It must be approved by voters and the proceeds can only be used for street maintenance and construction.
