CITY HALL — A city-funded report that found Glendale had the highest reported rate of adult marijuana and cocaine use in Los Angeles County will finally have its day, nine months after officials sidelined its hearing to put the data in greater context.
In that time, local nonprofit social service agencies have been unable to tap the wide-ranging Quality of Life Indicators report in applying for funding grants because the City Council must first note and file the information before it's official.
The report was originally scheduled to come to the City Council in November, roughly two months after it was completed. The report is now slated to be reviewed July 13.
City Councilman John Drayman said he was concerned by the "apologetic tone" associated with reporting on the indicators and their findings.
"This report needs to be brought forward," he said. "It's how we improve the city. It's how we improve the services for the residents of Glendale."
