The Burbank City Council invites residents to one of three upcoming forums to gather public input in the search for a permanent city manager.
I began serving as your interim city manager on Dec. 3. One of my assignments has been to help guide the city while City Council searches for a permanent replacement.
The city manager is a very important position in city government. He/she is responsible for the city's day-to-day administrative operations while supervising all departments in carrying out the policies set by City Council. In Burbank, that means overseeing a staff of more than 1,400 and a 2012-13 total budget of over $635 million.
