Previously disqualified rent control measure to appear on Burbank ballot
A judge last week ruled that a local rent control initiative belongs on the Burbank city ballot, even though the city’s clerk disqualified the measure just two months ago.
In June, Burbank City Clerk Zizette Mullins rejected the petition because it lacked some legally required wording. Price-control advocates, who had submitted the required number of signatures to qualify the measure, responded with a legal challenge. On Friday, L.A. Superior Court Judge Mary H. Strobel ruled in their favor.
