Ketchum empanels events commission

Group will help city promote entertainment, activities

Express Staff Writer

Public events in Ketchum provide entertainment, community cohesion and economic activity. On Monday, the Ketchum City Council designated members to the city's new Events Commission to help support those goals.

"This moves Ketchum forward in terms of how we get events and the kinds of events we get," Mayor Randy Hall said.

The council approved Hall's recommended appointees: Jen Smith, with the Ketchum Parks and Recreation Department; Lisa Horowitz, with the city of Ketchum; Greg Randolph, with the Sun Valley Marketing Alliance; Marshal McInnis, with Sun Valley Co.: Christl Holzl, with Sun Valley Center for the Arts; Thatcher Marsted, with Whiskey Jacques'; John Sofro, a real estate agent; and Danelle Stern and Julian Tyo, valley residents.

Also appointed were Anne Winton and Sharon Arms, as ex-officio members.

Councilwoman Nina Jonas hoped the commission would help keep a youthful vibe and alternative spirit in town.

The city created the commission last month. It is modeled after the city's arts commission.

Members were scheduled to meet this week to review the commission's bylaws, review the events schedule for the year and discuss next steps.
