Committee; Youth Endowment Services Fund Advisory Committee; Civil
Service Board; Board of Library Trustees; Board of Building and Fire
Code Appeals; Park, Recreation and Community Services Board; Police
Commission; Burbank Water and Power Board; Planning Board;

The council will choose from 10 candidates to fill three vacancies
on the Planning Board. Board Chairwoman Carolyn Berlin abruptly
resigned last week with two years remaining on her four-year term.

member can serve on more than one panel at the same time. Several
candidates, though, have applied for more than one board, and will
receive consideration based on their order of preference.
