Mayor's Veterans Day Remarks
Available on Demand
As he did with his annual State of the City remarks in August, Dr. Yxstian Gutierrez, Mayor of Moreno Valley, live streamed his Veterans Day remarks this year on the City's Facebook and YouTube accounts and TV channel MV3. The City's usual event at the Civic Center Veterans Memorial was changed due to virus safety concerns. His remarks are archived on those platforms for you to watch at your leisure.
New Military Appreciation
Banners and Pavers Installed
One of the ways Moreno Valley demonstrates its respect for military service is with its Military Appreciation Banners and Pavers Program. Banners are installed on streetlight poles in the area near City Hall and March Air Reserve Base, and engraved pavers are installed around the Veterans Memorial at the Moreno Valley civic center plaza. New banners and pavers have recently been installed to honor the following brave Americans:

  • Gillermo Nunez Chavez, Army
  • Ian A. Lenz, Navy
  • Jorvin II Julao Sevilla, Army and Army National Guard
  • Gillermo Nunez Chavez, Army
  • Bruce Daniel Johnson, Marines
  • Ruben Antonio Sandoval, Air Force
  • Ronald B. Singleton, Marines

Applications for pavers and banners are available online at www.moval.org/community/monument.shtml, Questions can be directed to the City’s Parks & Community Services Department at 951-413-3701.
City's Emergency Operations Center (EOC) Keeps MoVal Prepared
While an emergency can strike any City, Moreno Valley is much better prepared than most because it has a staffed Emergency Operations Center (EOC) ready to respond in a rapid, coordinated fashion.

The Fire Department's Office of Emergency Management and Volunteer Services is responsible for minimizing the effects of natural and man-made disasters by establishing readiness through City-wide prevention, preparedness, response, recovery and mitigation. It includes coordinating and conducting drills for the EOC, as well as providing a wide variety of training to both employees and residents, including Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), Terrorism Awareness, and emergency preparedness training. 

In time of emergency, the EOC brings together City management and Police and Fire first-responders in a single location where plans and decisions can be made efficiently and based on the facts of the situation, and needed resources can be marshalled quickly without necessarily having to rely on another government agency.

This offers a significant savings to City residents ranging from $50 to as much as $200 per pet.
The offer will last until 200 dogs and cats have vouchers and are scheduled to be spayed or neutered. Vouchers will be issued by appointment only. To make an appointment, call 951-413-3790, Tuesday – Friday, 10:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m., or on Saturday, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
