David Mickagelian is Redmond's choice for new City Manager; but there are a few more "hoops" that need to be jumped through before it's official.
Mayor George Endicott officially presented the choice to the Redmond City Council last night.
Endicott says if all the vetting goes well, Mickagelian probably won't be able to start for a couple of months.
"He has one of those contracts that has a 60-day clause in it. So my guess is maybe in December. We were hoping for one in November, but I just don't think we can make it happen, because if her comes up here early October and he likes us and we like him, them we have some vetting to do. And then we'd make the formal offer, at which time he can start his clock. So I’m thinking some time in December is a more realistic guess."
Endicott says it was pretty unanimous that he was the right guy for the job and he's coming with a wealth of experience in areas that are unique to Redmond.
Next step is a public meet and greet and tour of city facilities on October 8th.
