Swedish furniture giant IKEA will face its final hurdle next week in its quest to build its largest store in the country, with the Burbank City Council set to consider the project on Tuesday. The retailer has the Burbank Planning Board on its side, which in January recommended the council green light the project, though some residents have voiced concerns about parking, traffic congestion and pedestrian safety. The new story would be nearly twice the size of the current location.

Burbank Unified Supt. Jan Britz could potentially receive a $15,000 raise if the school board approves it while discussing her contract on Thursday. Britz, who replaced former superintendent Stan Carrizosa, took the helm of the district in July 2012. She began with a starting salary of $185,250, which would have otherwise been $190,000, if not for a 2.5% pay cut that all Burbank administrators took temporarily in response to a weak economy encroaching on the district. When her contract automatically rolled over for another year beginning on July 1, 2013, her salary went up to $190,000.

It's like your grandmother wanting to get an R-rated glamor-shot makeover. Not only do you definitely not want to see her all tarted up in a push-up bra and marabou-trimmed satin mules, you have to run out of the room hollering over the sound of her voice whenever she so much as mentions it . Same thing, aviation-wise, when it comes to Burbank airport, since 2003 called Bob Hope Airport. Before that it was the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport, the neighborhood airport for the 818 area code and parts of the 626 and 323. Like your granny, it's 80-ish years old, and also like your granny, it has sacrificed uber-modernity for the sake of comfort and shabby charm, and that's the way we've liked it. At the Burbank airport, you don't expect first-class lounges with massages and lattes; you don't look for caviar snacks or Gucci  boutiques.

I am so excited after finding out in two Sept. 28 Leader stories, “Appealing ruling stumps council,” where Mike Nolan exposed a recurring bureaucratic city executive staff boo-boo mindset at Burbank City Hall, and “Council OKs contract change for city manager” that Mark Scott is here. I've known Scott since 1986. I met him in Beverly Hills when he was transportation director and acting ombudsman before he became the Beverly Hills city manager. In Beverly Hills Scott worked long work weeks, came daily to his job during his vacations, attended so many Beverly Hills civic, city and special events, including showing up weekly at the Sunday farmers market.

Those opposing the proposed Walmart in the Empire Center were no doubt relieved - and proponents dismayed - when a judge ruled this week that Burbank must rescind the project's building permits. If the Walmart project is to proceed, Judge Allan Goodman ruled, street improvements promised in 2001 must be made and an environmental report must be produced for public consideration. Then there's the matter of the grocery store Walmart intends to open. The Burbank city manager and director of community development at the time, Mike Flad - since moved to South Gate - and Greg Hermann - now retired - had to formally approve the market.

More than 100 people gathered at Burbank City Hall Tuesday to commemorate the Armenian genocide and the Holocaust, which together claimed the lives of 7.5 million people. Descendants of Holocaust victims and survivors lit seven candles at the City Council meeting to commemorate their families and the six million massacred. Nina Guttman and David Drexler lit a candle for their mother, Rena Drexler, who survived four years in the Auschwitz-Birkenau extermination camp. Steve Harman lit a candle for Holocaust survivor Irving Belfer, who escaped from a death march.

Burbank's newly appointed treasurer and city clerk were sworn in at City Hall Tuesday night, telling the crowd that they looked forward to fulfilling their roles that were opened when their predecessors retired early. City Treasurer Debbie Kutka - who left her seat on the Burbank Unified school board for the appointment - and Zizette Mullins, a former Glendale city official, were sworn in by the Deputy City Clerk Susan Doman at the City Council meeting. Kukta has said she would also step down as president of KO Properties, based in Glendale, to take the city treasurer position.

Contained in this issue is an overview of the 17 applicants vying to be appointed to two hugely important positions at City Hall: city clerk and city treasurer. They're typically elected, but due to early retirements, the City Council will be appointing their successors next week at a special public meeting. Residents may not get a direct vote, but they should still be informed and - gasp! - take part in the quasi-electoral process by bending the ear of the City Council on who they think would best serve in the posts on an interim basis.
