Two big jobs are open in Redmond right now and a nationwide search is just around the corner. The first job is Police Chief. Ronnie Roberts left to be Chief in Olympia, Washington. So the City needs someone to take over where he left off. Redmond Mayor George Endicott says the transition comes at a time when the economy is tough and budgets are tight. Roberts said on his watch he was starting to see a slight uptick in crimes related to the economy. "The good news is that violent crime has actually decreased. Also of people are in emotional distress, but at least they are not taking it out on each other; which is a good thing. There was a slight uptick in property crime, which was hardly noticeable.” And that surprised him. And the second position Redmond will be filling is the Airport Manager. After many years at the helm; Carrie Novik is retiring. Mayor Endicott says the Airport Manager position is very challenging because it calls for a specific skill set that only about 1000 people in the country have. The City would like local input on both positions.
