BURBANK CITY COUNCIL MEETING PREVIEW

ON THE AGENDA

The following items will be discussed at Tuesday's Burbank City Council meeting:

?

The council is slated to consider a bill that would halt construction on all projects in Burbank that require the use of water.

Councilman David Gordon has put forth the suggestion, which comes in the face of record water shortages in the region. Some have partly blamed the shortage on increased construction throughout California.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Community Development staff members are seeking direction from the council and, if directed, are due to come back with more definitive plans for a possible moratorium at a future meeting.

?

The council will consider the appointment of Assistant City Manager Mike Flad as Burbank's next city manager.

If approved, Flad would assume the position on Jan. 6, taking the reins from Mary Alvord, who had worked with the city for nearly four decades and as city manager for five years.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Flad, who is expected to be named, would make more than $210,000 as executive head of Burbank.

?

The council will consider the possibility of implementing a new BurbankBus route, which would connect Burbank residents with the city's major recreation, shopping and civic destinations.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Transportation staff members are recommending that the council maintain the current level of BurbankBus transit service because of the transportation system's projected deficit.
