GLENDALE CITY COUNCIL MEETING PREVIEW: WATER CONSERVATION

The City Council on Tuesday is expected to enact mandatory 10% water conservation, which would limit irrigation to three days a week for 10 minutes.

The restrictions are in response to a reduction in shipment from the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, which supplies about 70% of the city’s water.

WHAT TO EXPECT

The council will likely enact mandatory water conservation as they paved the way to do so last month with changes to the ordinance after lengthy public and council debate.

EMERGENCY GENERATOR

The council will review a $133,868 contract for the installation of a diesel-powered emergency generator at Howard Energy Dispatch Center.

WHAT TO EXPECT

The council will likely authorize the contract because the current gasoline-powered generator has been unreliable.

FUNDS FOR DNA LAB

The council will review the receipt of $1 million in federal funds to go toward building a Foothill Regional DNA Laboratory for local law enforcement agencies, including Glendale.

WHAT TO EXPECT

The council is expected to accept the funds for the lab, which police say is much needed.

PUBLIC SAFETY FUNDING

The council will consider authorizing an agreement with the city of Los Angeles for the management of $1.3 million in grant funds for Glendale fire and police departments. The grant was awarded by the Urban Area Security Initiative Program. The funds will pay for various officer training and new equipment.

WHAT TO EXPECT

The council will likely approve the funds, as there is no fiscal effect to the city.
