By working together, in the last 4 years your City Council:

Ensured every traditional high school in Glendale has a uniformed and armed police officer on campus during school hours.


  

Added two low-acuity units to our Fire Department to improve response times.

Adopted a 5-year Pavement Management Program, which is well on its way to addressing the needs of our over 700 miles of streets.


  

Reached an agreement with the Tohono O’odham Nation for them to pay the city $1.4 million per year in lieu of traditional city taxes.

Equipped our police officers with body cameras to improve training and transparency. 



  

Refinanced city bond debt – saving over $72 million in future interest payments!

Purchased land to fulfill our parking obligations to the Arizona Cardinals, which saved about $25 million over the cost of building a parking garage.


  


Increased staffing in Police, Planning, Code Compliance, and Engineering.



  

Increased transparency by posting Council expenses online and extending email retention from one year to two years.

Settled a 25-year-old condemnation dispute with Conair Corporation, which paved the way for them to build a new one million square foot distribution center that employs 300 people. 


  

Preserved the Foothills Branch Library and we are preparing to open the new Heroes Park Branch Library in 2019.

Hired AEG, the world’s largest arena management company, to bring a wide variety of great entertainment to our Gila River Arena.
