Some residents stood at the podium urging City Council members to review the filming code thoroughly regardless of the time spent.
“I want to know, what’s the rush?” said Burbank resident Rose Prouser.
She questioned who authored the bill after seeing Police Chief Tim Stehr’s name on the draft.
“Ordinances should be drafted by lawyers and should be reinforced by the police and not vice versa,” Prouser said.
In response to Prouser’s testimony, incoming City Manager Mike Flad said the ordinance has been under review for over a year. He also indicated that the ordinance was crafted by the city attorney’s office.
