The city of Burbank launched its online public records portal on Monday, allowing members of the public to search and access city documents electronically.
The optimized search engine enables users to retrieve archived records dating back as far as 1911. Documents available in the portal include City Council resolutions, ordinances and minutes. Building documents, such as permits, inspection records, and certificates of occupancies, are also included.
More records will be added over time as part of this project.
“As a part of the city’s commitment to transparency, making public records accessible to the community is an important priority,” said Burbank City Clerk Kimberley Clark. “This portal will improve our processes and further support our efforts in providing timely information to the public.”
