Burbank Water and Power General Manager, Ron Davis, is the talk of the town.  Not only because of his hefty salary and merit pay bonuses — reportedly totaling $263, 018 last year — but because of an illegal action involving water discharged from his swimming pool.

For days now, folks have been talking about Davis draining a portion of his pool water. Outraged neighbors jawing about the incident — complained the infraction “… for a day was filling the street with roaring water.” I was sent this photo of the BWP honcho’s half-empty pool anonymously.

In an article on the Burbank Leader website dated July 15, 2011, Davis admitted he should have taken out the $28 permit before draining his pool reportedly for repairs.

Not surprisingly, Burbank city officials have decided to forgive Davis and not hit him with a $25,000 fine. However, the Leader reports state water quality officials are investigating –both Davis and the city could be subject to a fine for the violation.
