Gilbert News Brief: Week of July 22nd
Hello, Gilbert! Here are the top news and events for the week of July 22nd:
Gilbert Mayor Jenn Daniels is joining forces with 40 other leaders from around the world to participate in the Bloomberg Harvard City Leadership Initiative. The innovative approaches discussed during this program will help us as we explore how to create the ‘City of the Future’ here in Gilbert.
With monsoon season up on us, mosquito prevention and repellent are crucial to protect yourself. Rainy weather tends to bring an influx of mosquitoes and standing water – even just a small amount – serves as a breeding ground. For information on Gilbert’s mosquito control efforts as well as tips on how to keep the bugs at bay, visit gilbertaz.gov/mosquito-control.
Gilbert is committed to creating a more earth-friendly community and now we’re celebrating local businesses that do the same with the launching of our Green Gilbert Business Partnership Program. The program will highlight Gilbert businesses that have made measurable efforts to prevent pollution, reduce waste and conserve water. For more information on this brand-new program and the application process, visit to gilbertaz.gov/greengilbertp.
