Burbank officials to deliberate “highly inappropriate” comments
The City Council on Tuesday is scheduled to hear a proposal to possibly oust two civil service commissioners for “highly inappropriate” comments made when they twice blocked the temporary promotion of a police lieutenant.
Mayor Gary Bric on Dec. 15 elected to delay discussion on Councilman Dave Golonski’s proposal until the full council could deliberate. Vice Mayor Anja Reinke was absent.
The Civil Service Board twice denied extending the temporary advancement of Lt. Armen Dermenjian to the post of acting captain, arguing that a city employee named in an FBI probe into excessive-force allegations should not be trusted with additional responsibility.
