Redmond Mayor George Endicott gave a report card on the state of the City during his annual address on Wednesday. He admits we are living through some challenging times. “We are in austere times. I’ll use that word, financially. We’re tightening our belts. We’re in caretaker mode. We’ll be doing a little maintenance in the coming year, no construction, we got a grant so many some road construction. Probably going to delay Evergreen is maybe becoming City Hall, delay it a year.” Mayor Endicott says they'll continue to look at possible economic development for the city and expanding their Urban Renewal District.
