What do you think about the plan to merge Ketchum and Sun Valley

"Economically, I believe it's a sound alternative. However, politically it seems like it will be difficult to get passed."

Linde Hoff


"Shared services but distinct identities sounds viable. After living in Ketchum then Elkhorn for 11 years and Indian Creek for 14 years, it's difficult to imagine the unanimity on this issue."

Rob Santa


"Keep the same names but functionally consolidate. We need to work smarter."

David Lister

Hailey (raised in Ketchum)

"I'm against it. Sun Valley Resort needs to stay Sun Valley for its many years of distinction. The cities can't even agree how to handle emergency dispatches."

Ron Heller

Sun Valley

"I'm 100 percent behind the merger idea. It's economically sound. In fact, I believe their cost estimates are conservative in nature. Ketchum and Sun Valley are complementary to each other. Names don't matter, as people live in Warm Springs, Elkhorn, Ketchum and Sun Valley. I'm thoroughly behind the merger and I'm trying to get my fellow Sun Valley residents also behind it."

Sam Adicoff

Sun Valley

"I'm all for it, as I've always wanted to live in Sun Valley and this might be my only chance."

Tim Lyon


"I think Sun Valley is a great little town and I think Ketchum is a great little town. They are both uniquely different and I think that we ought to leave them the way they are."

Bill Smith

Sun Valley

"Absolutely not. Sun Valley has been the same since I was a little kid. It is world-renowned as it is. Furthermore, let's leave Wall Street and Ketchum with all their banks also alone."
