Next week, Burt will receive an official thanks from the city in the form of a resolution thanking him for "outstanding public service." Burt, who will complete his first term on the council in late 2011, currently represents the city on the Peninsula Cities Consortium — a coalition that deals with issues relating to high-speed rail — and on the San Francisquito Creek Joint Powers Authority, an agency charged with protecting Palo Alto, Menlo Park and East Palo Alto from flooding. The council is scheduled to adopt the resolution on Jan. 4, just after Burt vacates the mayor's chair to his expected successor, current Vice Mayor Sid Espinosa.
