City Meetings

  • The Glendale City Council meetings will be closed to the public during City Council Workshops and City Council Voting meetings until further notice. This action follows guidelines from the federal government stating that no more than 10 people should be gathered in a room at the same time. The public is encouraged council meeting through our Glendale 11 Online Streaming.
  • Boards and Commission Meetings will be cancelled unless required by law.
  • Community Meetings and Outreach Events in city buildings are temporarily suspended and city staff will not be attending community meetings during this time.
