Suzanne Frick

    A public servant from California has been chosen to replace Gary Marks as the city of Ketchum’s city administrator.
    Suzanne Frick is currently the assistant city manager of Long Beach, Calif., a position she’s held for seven years. Long Beach is a city of about 470,000 residents south of Los Angeles. Frick has also worked for the cities of Santa Monica and Anaheim, Calif.  
    The tenure of interim City Administrator Ray Silver ended Thursday. Marks left his position on March 7 to become the new city administrator of Lebanon, Ore. He started working for the city in August 2008.
    The city will pay Frick an annual salary of $160,000, following her contract’s approval. She is scheduled to begin work Aug. 18. 
    According to the city, Frick had a leadership role with the office of sustainability in Long Beach. Ketchum Mayor Nina Jonas said that Frick’s expertise in the field will help guide the city’s goals toward eco-friendly initiatives.  
  During the 53-day gap between Silver leaving and Frick starting, Lisa Enourato, assistant to the city administrator and communications coordinator, said she will assist Jonas in handling matters under the administrator’s jurisdiction.
    Enourato said Silver prepared the city’s budget for the next fiscal year beginning Oct. 1 before his tenure ended. It will be presented to the City Council July 9 for comments and review.
