State of the City Postponed

Carmel, IN – Carmel Mayor Jim Brainard has announced he will postpone his annual State of the City address scheduled for November while the City continues to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Previously scheduled as a “virtual” address to be shared on social media, the Mayor felt it would be better to wait until such a time that everyone could gather together for a live speech, as has been the tradition for the past two decades.

“While we do have a lot of positive news to share about the state of our City, I think it is more important to remain focused on the serious matters at hand,” said Brainard. “Once we get a vaccine and we start to come out of this global pandemic, then we can take some time to reflect on where we have been and where we are going.”

The annual speech is likely to be rescheduled to the spring of 2021.
