Glendale City Council Meeting Wrap-Up

Elderly nutrition program

The City Council on Tuesday awarded a four-year contract with Morrison Management Specialists Inc. to provide a catered meals service for the city's congregate and home delivered meal programs for seniors.

The city was awarded $214,284 in federal funds administered by Los Angeles County to support the program.

Under the proposed contract, Morrison would provide about 40,000 hot meals at city-operated facilities annually at $4 per meal and about 11,550 frozen meals for delivery to home-bound seniors annually at $3.90 per meal.


The contract is supported through federal funds so there is no fiscal effect to the city.


Water board appointment

The council voted to appoint City Councilwoman Laura Friedman as the city's representative on the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California Board of Directors.

The current representative, Glendale Water & Power Assistant General Manager Peter Kavounas, was appointed in February with the acknowledgment that the appointment would be of a limited duration.

Metropolitan provides up to 70% of the city's water supply.


Friedman will serve out the remaining of the term, which expires in July 2012.


Land entitlements, extensions

The council granted a two-year extension on building entitlements, such as variances, and building design reviews in response to the increasing number of projects being affected by the economic downturn.


The ordinance will likely be approved as it was introduced last week without debate.
