The City of Glendora was presented with a plaque and scroll honoring its being chosen as a finalist as "Most Business-Friendly City."
The Los Angeles Economic Development Corporation presented the city with its plaque and scroll from the LAEDC and the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors at the Oct. 22 City Council meeting.
Glendora is a finalist as a city with over 50,000 residents and is vying for the award along with Lancaster, Pico Rivera, Paramount and Santa Monica.
"Too often we hear from many businesses that it's really hard to do business in California, it's hard to do business in LA County. I want to say you guys are doing incredible things," said Bob Machuca, LAEDC senior regional manager.
Machuca admired Glendora's website, calling it interactive, full of information and noted how its permit process flowchart was a welcomed feature for new businesses.
This is the second year in a row Glendora was selected as a finalist for the award. Duarte won last year.
