The City and several of its departments are hosting many community outreach meetings in the area to get input on upcoming projects and services they are providing in the area. The latest and greatest news from the City of Glendale comes to you via www.MyGlendaleCityNews.org.

ElNinoReady.org, a new site created through a partnership among Glendale, Pasadena and Burbank, provides links filled with important information as well as the ability to sign up for alerts regarding El Nino. ElNinoReady.org will have extensive content, including a series of plans and safety precautions residents can take to prepare for wetter-than-average weather conditions. Residents will be able to receive information from their respective city and sign up for additional emergency alerts. Information detailing sandbag use and availability for each city, flood preparation and recovery, rainy weather safety tips, and animal preparedness are just some of the topics covered on the new website.
