The City and community of Garden Grove has been busy this holiday season, spreading good tidings and cheer with special outreach programs and services.
The City of Garden Grove is seeking candidates to serve as non-compensated commissioners. Applicants must be Garden Grove residents and registered voters, be able to serve a two-year term of office, and be available to attend regularly scheduled meetings. Commissioners serve as advisors to the City Council, providing recommendations that become part of the City’s decision-making process.
As part of the City’s Accident Reduction Campaign, the Garden Grove Police Department conducted a crosswalk operation on Wednesday, October 26, from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., at Lemonwood Lane and Garden Grove Boulevard. The purpose of the operation was to educate drivers on the importance of yielding to pedestrians in marked and unmarked crosswalks.
Drivers who did not yield the right of way to a Garden Grove police cadet crossing the street, while wearing a reflective safety vest, were ticketed. The crosswalk operation resulted in 70 citations issued.
