Snowmass Village hires public works director


The town of Snowmass Village has named Anne Martens, of Minnesota, as its new director of public works.

Martens has worked in the management and operations of public infrastructure for 15 years, according to a statement. She is currently the director of public works in Fergus Falls, Minn., a town of 13,000 residents. She also has held similar roles in Gypsum and Avon.

Martens will start on Dec. 16. The position has been open since June 28, when Hunt Walker’s retirement took effect.

“At each position I’ve held, I have gained the technical experience, passion for customer service, and leadership and team-building skills necessary to serve the town of Snowmass Village well,” Martens said. “I enjoy working in local government and in small towns with a great community feel.”

As director of public works for Snowmass Village, Martens will oversee the day-to-day operations of the four divisions within the department, including road; solid waste and recycling; fleet; and facilities maintenance. She also will be responsible for long-term strategy and asset management.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Anne to the town organization, and we feel that she’ll be a valuable addition to our team,” said Gary Suiter, interim town manager. “She brings a wealth of expertise in the efficient and effective management of teams that can deliver great service no matter the season to residents and visitors.”

Martens holds a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering with a minor in geography from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities.
