Remember the radiator shop on Burbank Blvd near Dino’s that always had molten lead bubbling away in a little portable fire pit at its entrance? All day long that thing would just sit there 15 feet from the street happily smoking away, and the best thing about it was that no one ever complained or asked why it was there.
Tonight the council will be debating on whether or not they should allow a custom auto guy in that same general area to have an individual spray booth at his facility. Apparently some of the neighbors are up in arms because they forgot that they’re not living in San Marino.
Of course, we think the council should allow it. Everyone knows that Burbank was built on the backs of these great and useful cottage and service industries. This town was always where people from all over would go to get things done.
We’ve been losing way too many of these small businesses lately, and so let’s do what we can to keep what’s left of them around. They’re great to see and great to have.
