Assemblymember Mike Miller and Councilmember Elizabeth Crowley recently visited the joint meeting of the Glendale Civilian Observation Patrol (G-COP) and the Glendale Property Owners Association.

Both elected officials honored those individuals who volunteered their time during Hurricane Irene. Among those honored were volunteers who directed traffic when power was lost, assisted with the removal of downed trees and power lines, and contributed to the clean-up effort.
