Brazil Mayor Ann Bradshaw told The Brazil Times that she began working on a PowerPoint presentation at the beginning of the year, but her involvement in helping to clear up the city's financial situation has put it on hold.
"I am waiting until we get our certified budget back and finish the final steps to straighten things out," she said. "You can't go out and tell people what you don't know for sure."
In recent years, the "State of the City" address has taken place in January in front of members of the Chamber of Commerce, but Bradshaw said making the address has always been at the mayor's discretion.
"The 'State of the City' does not necessarily have to be held every year," she said. "I don't recall former mayor (Norval) Pickett ever having one."
While the exact date of the potential address is still up in the air, Bradshaw wants to make sure she has all the correct information at her disposal before presenting it to the public.
"Elected officials, like myself, ought to be up front with the public," Bradshaw said. "You can't just put out information without having the concrete facts."
