City of Burbank employees, guests, and city officials gathered earlier this week to rededicate the newly finished Burbank Police and Fire Headquarters building at Third and Orange Grove. The ceremonies were hosted by Bonnie Teaford, Burbank’s Public Works Director, whose department oversaw the project.

New entrance ways, new windows, new flooring, new wiring, new planters, new paint and plaster and a host of other improvements were all included in the $8.9 million project.  Teaford gave thanks to several companies that were involved in the project, along with representatives from the Police Department and Fire Department, who put up with the project and worked with crews hammering, pounding and all of the inconvenience daily.

City Manager Mike Flad gave kudos to Teaford for the fine work she did with this and all projects she is involved in. Mayor Jess Talamantes echoed the praise and then invited everyone in attendance to join him and walk to the other end of the building and cut the ribbon on the new Centennial Walkway.

The Centennial Walkway, located near the intersection of Palm Avenue and Third Street, is a mini park with new benches and trees, a quiet place to sit and reflect.

The museum inside the headquarters was open for visitors and refreshments were offered.
