The City of Redmond ended up with about 30 candidates for the City Manager's position, and the council narrowed the list down to about six.
Mayor George Endicott says the candidates come from as far away as Michigan, and all have great resumes.
He says they are looking for someone who could really "think outside the box." "If you think about someone like David [Brandt] that we brought in from outside the state and how successful he's been, because he's not trapped by rules as they exist, and he can do a lot of the "what if?" stuff. So it's kinda fun look at those two philosophies as away to look at stuff. I don't know what we'll end up with, but we just have to consider all that as we do the interviews."
Endicott says they will hold interviews with the prospects this weekend and hopefully make a selection shortly after.
Depending on the candidate, Endicott says they hope the new manager will be in place by November, if not sooner.
