The canyon’s Pride of Buckingham neighbors held a potluck block party to celebrate and honor the annual National Night Out. It was a Chevy Chase blast.
And, there were celebrities galore. The Mayor of Glendale, Dan Brotman, Glendale’s finest GPD, and Glendale Fire straight out of the bat cave, all joined in with the food and festivities. A huge thanks to the Pride of Buckingham for hosting a party that does our Chevy Chase Canyon proud, and a shout-out to the National Night Out organization for their inspiration.

On Tuesday, June 6, 6:00 pm the Glendale City Council will vote on jacking up your garbage collection rates by an outrageous 387 percent. But it gets worse, the city council rulers have made it virtually impossible to comment on or protest their greedy rate hike. Please read the following and make your voices heard.
The City of Glendale just released a second version of the PROPOSED INCREASE OF SOLID WASTE RATES. On January 10, 2023 The Council withdrew the first version & indicated that all protests & suggestions would be taken into consideration in drafting the revised proposal. This did not happen; in fact, the City of Glendale doubled-down.
THE PROPOSED RATES IN THE SECOND PROPOSAL ACTUALLY INCREASED FROM THE ORIGINAL 358% TO 387%.
City officials claim the rate is justified because there have been no rate increases in 12 years. However the California Consumer Price Index has risen only 42% in the last 12 years.
Unless “A MAJORITY OF GLENDALE HOMEOWNERS” protest, Glendale’s solid waste rates will almost QUADRUPLE (387%) over the next 4 years:
Date of Increase New Rate as a Percentage of 2023 Rate
All Glendale Homeowners: Please take the time to file a protest in order to stop this proposed quadrupling of YOUR Glendale solid waste rates.
How to Protest The Proposed Rate Increase:
Written protests regarding the proposed new solid waste rate increase may be mailed to: City of Glendale, City Clerk, 613 E. Broadway, Room 110, Glendale, California 91206. Written protests may also be personally delivered to the City Clerk at this address. To be valid, a protest must be in writing and received (not postmarked) by the City Clerk prior to the close of the Public Hearing on June 6, 2023. Oral, telephonic and e-mail protests will not be accepted. Because an original signature is required, emailed, faxed and photocopied protests will not be counted. Oral comments provided at the Public Hearing will not qualify as a formal protest unless accompanied by a written protest.
In order for a formal protest to be valid, it must contain the following:
Be in writing
Received by the City Clerk before the June 6 hearing
Contain parcel(s) description with the APN (Assessor Parcel Number)
Statement protesting the rate increase
Name and signature of property owner or rate payer
And mailed or delivered in person to 613 E Broadway Room 110, Glendale, CA 91206
