Redmond is still on the search for a new airport manager. The City offered the job to John Reed of Green Bay, Wisconsin. City Manager David Brandt says they heard from Reed after considering their job offer for a week. “He was concerned that his wife, that is a well trained high school teacher, wouldn't get work in the area. After that he declined our offer.” Brandt says the current Airport Manager, Carrie Novick has agreed to stay on through the summer, while they continue their search. The other finalist didn't appear to be a good fit for the City, so another national search will get underway.
