Candidates for Burbank City Council and the Burbank Unified School District Board are winding down their campaigns as residents prepare to vote in the upcoming election.
The primary nominating election via mail-in ballot is Feb. 22. Whichever candidate or candidates earn more than 50% of the vote automatically earn a seat on the Burbank City Council. If necessary, an additional runoff election will be held in April.
Candidates for City Council face a $8.8-million budget gap looming over City Hall. Last fiscal year, city workers got a combined $1 million in bonuses, even as City Hall worked to bridge a multimillion-dollar budget gap.
