Burbank City Manager (+ Staff) Meet-&-Greet

November 10, 2013

Image

I had the privilege of attending a wonderful meet-&-greet for new City Manager Mark Scott hosted by Burbank City Councilman¬†Bob Frutos & Marsha Ramos. Also¬†in attendance were Police Chief Scott LaChasse, City Clerk Zizette Mullins & a host of Burbank community leaders.¬†Scott has impressed many since he took over the reigns as CM a few months ago with his humility & willingness to listen to everyone, regardless of whether they wear a suit & tie or a hawaiian shirt, a refreshing change vs. the previous arrogance & indifference displayed by some Staff members. I’ve also been impressed by his professionalism & honesty, and while I didn’t agree with his $300k contract, I have a lot more confidence that with his experience ¬†& leadership approach we can right the ship, make better/wiser decisions & ultimately make Burbank a better place to live, work & play.

Among the topics I heard discussed during the evening; Tuesday night’s marathon 10hr Council meeting that went to nearly 4am, the Lemonade¬†and Family Services Agency¬†Youth Counseling¬†decisions, the new Bob Hope Airport Terminal Measure B vote (2015) & B-6 property use/sale, the BWP fund transfer lawsuit & recent tragic house fire death¬†of a disconnected customer, the Cusamano’s Talaria Condo project w/Whole Foods, BPD Litigation incl. 2 recent arbitration rulings against the City, the $12M price tag ¬†& the Valento “extortion” indictment, the Walmart ruling re traffic mitigations & Staff’s “dishonesty”, as well as the Council decision NOT to appeal the ruling (3-2 vote), the DeBell Golf course ongoing viability, the Starlight Bowl, traffic,¬†and much more. A night of great food, fellowship & conversations.
