Mark Scott's first goal as Burbank's incoming city manager is simple: to listen. “I really need to spend the first two months getting to know people, and to listen to them,” Scott said in an interview Tuesday. “For a city manager coming into new community, the very first thing you want to do is to get to know your staff and your public.” He'll have a first chance to do so on Thursday afternoon at City Hall, where Burbank will be hosting a meet-and-greet with the city's new top official.

Mark Scott's career has led him up and down California, and across the country and back, so it's no surprise he and his wife are always debating about which region they should call home. The 63-year-old Fresno-native spent two decades building his career in the city of Beverly Hills - while living in Glendale - six years leading Spartanburg, South Carolina before a brief stint managing Culver City and, most recently, three years helping to stabilize his hometown after the crippling effects of the economic recession.

GLENDALE — An additional tax that could steer Glendale and Burbank school districts away from a looming funding cliff has piqued the interest of administrators, especially with the latest warning coming down from Sacramento. A parcel tax, which recently won in Culver City and failed in Long Beach, could preserve teaching jobs, class sizes, and arts and athletic programs that might otherwise face additional cuts as state financing fails to meet budget projections. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger predicted Tuesday that there would be additional cuts in education and other funding as the state continues to grapple with a budget cap between $5 billion and $7 billion.
