Changes Coming Soon In Ketchum


By Andrew Reed

Ketchum, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV ) Changes are on the way for the city of Ketchum.

Gary Marks is ending his time as the city administrator to take another position in Oregon.

He's been with the city for almost six years.

"Everything that I may have done was done with the team. We've had a great group of professionals here, and it was very fortunate for the community that we had that team in place, especially when the recession hit when I came on," Marks says.

The Ketchum City Council is expecting a lot of work ahead.

That includes selecting a new city administrator.

Meanwhile, an interim city administrator will be in place.

"We are in the process of going through an executive search. That always takes a period of time for people to apply and also do interviews with them. We will finalize the list and get down to three or four final contestants," explains Council member Baird Gourlay.

The Council is expected to hire someone within the next four months.

For Marks, the relationships he's built in the Wood River Valley won't be forgotten.

"I'll never forget the friendships I've built here and I'll take those with me. I hope to maintain those relationships; they are very dear to me," he points out.

As Marks begins a new chapter in his life, so does the city.

Marks last day is Friday.

Ray Silver will begin as interim city administrator beginning next week.
