During the Oct. 17 workshop, council could not come to consensus to authorize staff to continue its research on bringing light rail to downtown Glendale. The lack of consensus effectively ended the prospect of light rail coming to town.
“I just cannot continue to use funds for a project that may put our city back into financial restraints,” said Mayor Jerry Weiers. “Five years ago, we were considered along the lines of Detroit, who filed for bankruptcy, and now we are doing so much better, I just cannot agree to spend that much money on light rail.”
