Glendale City Council Meeting Wrap-Up

Glendale Management Assn. contract

The City Council on Tuesday adopted a new one-year contract with the Glendale Management Assn., which represents about 250 city employees.

The association earlier this month voted to approve the contract, which includes a higher employee contribution for health-care and pension plans, in addition to a two-tiered retirement system with reduced benefits for new hires.


The concessions will result in savings of about $625,000 this fiscal year, according to a city report.

Traffic safety grant

The City Council approved the receipt of a $254,795 grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety for a focused campaign on reducing speed on local streets.


The grant will fund speed and distracted driving enforcement operations as well as pedestrian education efforts.

Marijuana moratorium

The City Council extended a moratorium on pot dispensaries in Glendale as city attorneys await an appellate court ruling on an Anaheim ban and the results of a November ballot initiative to legalize and tax marijuana sales.

Medical marijuana dispensaries are prohibited under the city's current zoning codes, but the City Council approved a moratorium last year to close Glendale's borders to the shops as city attorneys analyzed a complicated legal landscape.


The moratorium may last for up to a year.
