PRESS RELEASE FROM CITY OF ASPEN:
The City of Aspen announced today that Assistant City Manager Randy Ready, who has been with the City since 1993 and in the Assistant City Manager position since 1996, has submitted his resignation in order to accept the position as Frisco’s Town Manager. Ready’s last day will be in early January.
Ready said, “When I arrived in Aspen 24 years ago, it was to take on new challenges and become part of the community. It has been an amazing adventure, with an opportunity to serve alongside the incredibly talented and dedicated professionals who work for the City. It has been an honor to work with the many mayors and council members over the years on behalf of everyone who lives, works or visits here. This is a very special place. The community relationships that my family and I have developed are precious to us and make the prospect of moving bittersweet.”
Ready will move into the Frisco Town Manager position that is being vacated by the retirement of former Aspen Assistant City Manager and former Basalt Town Manager Bill Efting. “We’re excited about the opportunity to continue to live and work in a wonderful Colorado mountain town,” said Ready. “This will be a challenging position filled with opportunities to work with town council, an impressive staff and an engaged group of citizens and businesses to be good stewards of the quality of life and community character that make Frisco such a remarkable community.”
City Manager Steve Barwick said, “It's been fantastic to work with Randy for all of these years. It will be difficult to replace someone with his level of experience, general expertise, and extraordinary insight on mobility issues. I can speak for the entire City of Aspen in wishing him all the best.”
