  • Start the Presses: It's about guidelines, not gotcha

    City attorneys issued a notice on Wednesday that they were culling together documents in response to our latest request for employee bonus-payout information, essentially the same request they denied on Dec. 9. People around here clearly agree with our...

  • Residents should be filling council chambers

    At the Dec. 11 Burbank City Council meeting, I was one of three speakers who protested the awarding of merit-based bonuses to city employees. I attended the council meeting after reading Gretchen Meier's article on the subject on Dec. 10. Frankly, I was...
