I grew up and went to school in Burbank and have always thought highly of the town. I would like to share an experience I recently had with the city of Burbank. With so much negativity in the press, this is most refreshing.
On the morning of Feb. 28, I went to get in my car parked in Burbank and there was a parking ticket on my window. I apparently was in violation of the street cleaning. The charge was $45.
I returned to Kern County and wrote the check for $45 and then decided to send a little note with the check. I wrote: ”I am writing this check under protest. I live in Bakersfield, Ca. and arrived on Wed. 27th late at night to visit my brother…. He had just lost his wife of 37 years and I was there to support and comfort him and I did not see the sign about parking. It would be nice if you would void this ticket and void my check.”
