Aspen assistant city manager leaving for Frisco

Staff report

The city of Aspen announced Friday the resignation of Assistant City Manager Randy Ready.

Ready, who has been with the city since 1993 and in the assistant city manager position since 1996, is leaving to take the job of Frisco’s town manager. Ready’s last day will be in early January, the city said in a statement.

“When I arrived in Aspen 24 years ago, it was to take on new challenges and become part of the community,” Ready said. “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 former Aspen Assistant City Manager and former Basalt Town Manager Bill Efting.

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.”
