Burbank’s New City Manager, Mark Scott, received a warm welcome Thursday afternoon in the Rotunda of City Hall. Civic leaders, Council members, residents and city employees got to shake hands and got to know the City’s new Chief Administrator.
Scott, who started in his new position on Thursday, took a couple of minutes to thank everyone for the warm welcome on his first day.

He told the group gathered that many years ago he lived nearby in Kennith Village in Glendale but did his shopping in Burbank, visited the AMC Theaters on a regular bases and even took his son on many occasions to Pickwick Ice Arena for games of Ice Hockey.

Scott said he probably won’t remember everyone’s name who he met on his first day but will be looking forward to see and meeting them again soon.
