County executive addresses community concerns


Whatcom County Executive Jack Louws and county council member Barbara Brenner were the featured guests at the Point Roberts Registered Voters Association annual general meeting on April 9.

Louws brought some positive news about the dock at Lighthouse Marine Park, where they expect to finally be able to drive new pilings in early June, and reported continuing county efforts to pursue code violations and “put some more teeth into code enforcement.”

He also fielded questions from the audience about how the gas tax dollars get spent and spoke to concerns about inadequate law enforcement on the Point. “We did engage with the county sheriff and he realizes we’re understaffed at the Point right now,” he said. “We know we don’t have the two resident deputies we are committed to provide and he believes that will be in place by the first of May.”
