GLENDALE CITY COUNCIL WRAP-UP

DEMOLITION FUNDING

The City Council on Tuesday approved a $40,000 increase to a contract between the city and Interior Demolition Inc. to fund the demolition of the Griffith Manor Park's community building.

The increased funding, which will bring the total contract amount to no more than $677,977, would also pay for soil engineering, testing and quality control for a proposed right-of-way.

WHAT IT MEANS

The demolition of the community building will initiate renovations of the park, which is slated for October.

HOLIDAY LIGHTING

The council authorized the bidding process for the holiday lighting on Brand Boulevard.

The city's Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department budgeted $93,582 for the lighting project.

WHAT IT MEANS

The city clerk will advertise for bids to install lights on Brand Boulevard, between Colorado Street and Glenoaks Boulevard, during the holiday season.

Contractors bidding for the three-year contract must be able to install, maintain, remove and store city-owned lights and banners.

INCREASED POLICE GRANT

The council received an $85,400 Justice Assistance Grant from the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to pay for training, logistical supplies and equipment for the Glendale Police Department. Police have already received $70,501 under the same grant program, which makes the total grant amount $155,901.

WHAT IT MEANS

The grant program was established to supply local police agencies such as Glendale's with the latest crime-fighting tools.
