CIVIC CENTER -- Burbank firefighters will receive a retroactive pay

increase that was approved unanimously by the Burbank City Council last


Effective July 1, 2001, members of the Burbank Firefighters local

number 778 will receive a 3.41% increase.

In addition, the city is currently conducting a survey of area


firefighters including Glendale, Pasadena, Torrance and Santa Monica.

If Burbank firefighters' salaries are still not on par with nearby

cities, they will be given an additional retroactive increase effective

from Jan. 1, 2002.

The total cost of the raises will be determined when the survey is

complete, but is estimated to run $398,529.
