Burbank City Council Meeting Wrap-up

May 17, 2008

BUDGETS STUDIED

Six city departments, including the City Clerk’s Office and the Police Department, outlined their proposed budgets for the 2008-09 financial year.

Officials also outlined the health and future of the city’s proposed general fund budget, warning that proposed state budget cuts and a regional housing slump could affect Burbank.

Two more budget study sessions are scheduled for 5 p.m. on May 20 and 27 in anticipation of the June 17 council meeting, when the budget is scheduled to be adopted.

WHAT IT MEANS

Despite the state’s budget woes, officials said that Burbank’s budget will remain relatively stable due to the city’s conservative economic budget forecasts.

NO VOTE

PROJECT LETTER

The council approved a letter to be sent to officials at the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power regarding a planned 78-inch pipeline project, a portion of which would run beneath Burbank.

In the letter, Planning Department staff members asked officials to “adequately analyze” all potential environmental impacts from the project and “ensure that information regarding the impacts and mitigation measures is adequately presented” to residents and businesses.

WHAT IT MEANS

The city has until May 15 to submit the letter.

VOTE: 5-0
