Plans to host the first of what could be a series of forums for the public to voice their concerns about the recent Burbank police fiascoes look good on the surface, but questions remain as to just how effective they'll be.

That duty is with the city manager and City Council, two entities under which this current mess brewed.
This week, the last of the 10 officers who received discipline notices were fired — a significant page turned on this too-long chapter of independent probes into police misconduct and civil-rights violations.
The FBI's investigation still looms large, and the city is still left with the ominous task of righting the course for the future of the Police Department.
