The Burbank City Council will be meeting more frequently starting this month after not holding meetings several times last year, which some city officials said caused regular meetings to run past midnight.
In the 10 Tuesdays since Thanksgiving, the council has met five times for regular public meetings.
Under the new schedule, however, the council will meet on all but six Tuesdays through August. Most of the so-called “dark” Tuesdays fall during holiday weeks or special events, such as Memorial Day, Independence Day and National Night Out.
City Manager Mark Scott drafted the new schedule, which was given to the City Council on Tuesday.
“The City Council asked us to maximize meeting opportunities, so we eliminated a few dark Tuesdays,” Scott said in an email.
