City closer to school help

Four more votes must be taken before funding for improvements at high- school athletic fields is in place, city official says.

Officials must also determine whether making improvements to the field and track would trigger Americans with Disability Act accessibility issues, requiring the district to also rehabilitate the stands before the facility can be used, Alvord said.

School leaders are largely satisfied by the council's move last night.

"One of the things that has always impressed me about Burbank is the city services and the city's willingness to jump in and lend a hand whenever the city's citizens need help," said Burbank High School Principal Bruce Osgood, who has been a Burbank resident for 27 years. "Obviously it would be ideal to have the city just cover the whole cost, but I think they are being responsible and looking at the city's overall budget. But I was more than happy with their … willingness to look at the issue."
