We had a packed house for Mayor Cacciotti’s State of the City talk at the ShopTalk Breakfast on Tuesday, November 7. The Mayor gave an update on all that has happened in the City during the last year, including the Open House at the Garfield Reservoir in October, several park and trail projects, street improvements, and the City being the first in the country to receive the AGZA designation. The Mayor also briefly touched on cash flow projections for the next 7 years and working with the MTA for funding 710 freeway corridor improvements. Stephanie DeWolfe, new City Manager, was introduced.
A copy of the presentation is available here.
