Holiday Closure Information
The Glendale City Council has approved closing city administrative offices the week of Christmas, Dec. 23-27, this year. The closure was a recommendation from an internal employee group which represents all city employees. The committee presented the idea to management who then brought it forward to the council with a recommendation for implementation.
