City of Burbank Launches Public Records Portal


The City of Burbank has launched an online Public Records Portal which allows members of the public to access city documents electronically. The optimized search engine enables the user to retrieve archived records dating back to 1911. Members of the public can access records such as City Council resolutions, ordinances, and minutes, in addition to building documents including permits, inspection records, and certificates of occupancies. More records will be added over time as part of this project.

    1. I am agnostic about this and would like to learn more. What would be the greater purpose of spending taxpayer money to scan and put online records that old other than for posterity? Has someone conducted a cost-return analysis to determine if it would be less expensive to the taxpayers to simply allow public inspection of older records? Why keep them online and spend the money to scan and maintain such old records? I would appreciate learning more details as this sounds expensive and I wonder is the juice worth the squeeze?
