The Civil Service Board, tasked with creating a nepotism policy, has declined to ban all relatives of city workers from employment, ultimately recommending that the rule apply only to family members of executives within their respective departments.
The policy would also prohibit relatives of Management Services Director Judie Wilke from employment in the city because she oversees recruitment and selection. Relatives of City Manager Mike Flad and his direct subordinates would not be eligible for city employment either, since he oversees all departments.
The proposed policy changes would not impact existing Burbank employees.
Most of the approximately 1,500 city employees are represented by unions and have memorandums of understanding. Some of those memorandums give officials the power to keep relatives separate, Wilke said.
