Dear Citizens,

As Maryland sees improving data from its struggle with the COVID-19 pandemic, the state re-opening plan continues stage by stage. Economic activities are re-starting, guided by local data and decision-making, and public health best practices. At the onset of the pandemic the City of Glenarden closed City Hall to the public and paused City/Council meetings.  We are now moving forward to virtual and conference call City/Council meetings via the internet for all to participate.
