Missing from this reporting is one item: How much is this position going to cost the citizens of Burlingame? I'd like to know what sort of salary do they pay the current elected position? What sort of benefits? Lifetime healthcare like the city council gave themselves? What sort of salary would they pay if it was an appointive position? Why is this stuff not reported?

Considering that the state of California is broke with a rather low probability of bailing itself out without taking away a lot of money from cities like Burlingame we need to be very careful with every penny we spend going forward. Is this proposed change to the city clerk position a money saver or will it cost more? In fact do we really even need this position? It's time to get serious and become fiscally responsible so that the future residents of Burlingame can have a decent life too.

There's a lot missing from the discussion so far.
