July 4 celebration recap

While we wish we could’ve gathered together on Friday evening for our traditional “SunnyFest,” the health and safety of our residents and our employees remains the number one priority. The Town received a great deal of feedback in response to the "party-in-a-bag" goody bags and the remote fireworks show. A lot of time and work was put into the assembly of the goody bags and setting the perimeter for the fireworks and we value your appreciation.

If you have pictures you would like to share from your lawn party, please email them to publicrelations@townofsunnyvale.org.

Phone system upgrade scheduled for Town facilities

All Town facilities will be experiencing a phone system upgrade on Friday, July 10. The upgrade is scheduled to begin at noon and phone lines at all Town facilities may not be functional until 4 p.m. at the earliest.


If you are in need of assistance, please email the department you are trying to reach:


Emergency lines will not be affected. If you have an emergency, call 9-1-1.
