Burbank Unified School Board Member Debbie Kukta will be the city's next treasurer, while longtime resident and Glendale Community Relations Coordinator Zizette Mullins was named Burbank city clerk Thursday.
Kukta and Mullins were both unanimously named to the interim positions during a special City Council meeting, necessitated by the retirements of City Clerk Margarita Campos and Treasurer Donna Anderson. Campos and Anderson, both of whom hold elected offices, announced their retirements with about a year left in their terms.
Kukta currently serves as a board member on the Burbank Unified School District, and is president of KO Properties, based in Glendale. In her statements before the council, she said she would resign her BUSD position and step down from her property management company.
