A “state of the city” address scheduled for Tuesday has been postponed until early April.

City spokesman Mark Kruea said scheduling conflicts caused the delay of the speech from Mayor John Rhodes. A new date has not yet been scheduled.

Rhodes said he will talk about the city’s accomplishments and goals for the future. He has delivered similar speeches every two years since he began serving as mayor in 2006.
