By declaring a state of emergency, the City is able to access State assets that may be needed to support the city through the duration of the power outage. The declaration will be considered for ratification at the next City Council Regular Meeting, November 12, 2019.

Glen Cove Fire
The fire has been fully contained and crews are continuing to provide area checks.  Contractors are clearing debris and eliminating hazards so that PG&E can repair and restore power in the fire impacted areas.
