Mayor's Corner

Mayor Steve Tye smYour City Council

March 2020 - As a community we take great pride in the natural beauty and clean environment that is a result of the efforts of our residents, businesses and City staff. During this season, I would like to remind our community that your upkeep efforts do not go unnoticed. As we enter spring and look for ways to maintain our homes and businesses, there are a variety of options and resources to explore.

Los Angeles County will be offering a free Household Hazardous and Electronic Waste Collection Event in Diamond Bar on Saturday, March 14.
