The city attorney for Thousand Oaks has been tapped for the chief legal spot in Burbank, city officials confirmed Thursday.
Amy Albano will officially begin Oct. 17 if the City Council votes to confirm her to the job, as expected. She will replace City Atty. Dennis Barlow, who is retiring after close to 14 years of service. He announced his retirement in January.
Albano joined the city of Thousand Oaks in 2005 after 14 years in the city of Ventura, also as a city attorney.
“She’s a problem solver, a very seasoned attorney and solution oriented,” Mayor Jess Talamantes said. “She has great people skills and will be a great benefit to Burbank.”
Albano’s 20 years of experience in municipal government and experience with the legal division of the California League of Cities made her an excellent choice, he added.
