The City is changing the color of their police cars from the present silver & navy to black. This was news to the Council. Apparently, the Mayor and staff made this change without including Council in the decision. Three councilmembers openly didn't like the change. CM Jessica Forsythe said black is an intimidating color associated with military and is not compatible with the Redmond's welcoming character. CM David Carson didn't like it at all though understood the reasons for it (cost.) CM Vanessa Kritzer agreed with Mr. Carson.
