I've written to the Leader previously on year-round swimming at the public pools and it would be interesting to know about the City Council candidates’ positions on this issue.
However, there is a larger issue that has a greater impact on Burbank that has not been examined, to my knowledge, for several years. That is the failed $10-million investment in Lehman Brothers securities by the city of Burbank.
Because the city's finances are frequently stated as a reason for not having a full year of pool access, perhaps this is relevant after all. Or perhaps it's relevant to the unexpected resignations of the former treasurer and city manager.
