Redmond City Council made tough cuts to approve its budget this week. Mayor George Endicott says they had to make nearly $2-million in cuts, to make the budget balance: “These are austere times. We cut $2-million out of the budget because of money we won't get and other things like things we have to fund legally, to make up $2- million. Part of that means non-profits won't get money and part of that is not buying new equipment.” The budget passed 4 to 2, by cutting $1.6 million in spending and dipping into the City's reserves for $400,000. Endicott says the only non-profits they put in the budget were the Economic Development for Central Oregon (EDCO) and Redmond Economic Development, because these agencies do work the City would have to if they weren't funded.
