Mayor Unhappy with Art Theft


The Mayor of Redmond says he's very disappointed by the theft of City artwork that was displayed downtown. A popular bronze bird sculpture was stolen from its perch outside a downtown Redmond store. The 3 foot tall blue heron was worth about $8400. Endicott says it was insured and the artist has agreed to create one sculpture, but its still discouraging: “It’s just the fact that someone who resort to that is what is upsetting to me. As a piece of art, it’s gorgeous; but as a piece of scrap metal it’s not worth much. So who knows who took it or why, I don't know if someone stuck in it in their backyard or they are trying to melt it down for scrap, but all the scrap metal dealings have been contacted in the extended area." Endicott says if anyone tries to sell it,  it will probably be reported. Te Mayor also presented his "State of the City" address today. He says 2011 was a year of budget challenges and one thing that 2012 will see is the city's first "round-a-bout."
