It is with regret that the Town of Mountain Village announces the resignation of Town Manager Kim Montgomery.
Town Attorney Paul Wisor will be Interim Town Manager effective immediately as the town begins the process to search for a new manager.
Montgomery has worked for the Town of Mountain Village since 2004 when she was hired as the Grants Administrator. She then became the Town Clerk and took on the Town Manager role in 2011.
“After 17 amazing years working with the team at Mountain Village, it’s time for me to focus on other endeavors,” Montgomery said. “It has been an honor working to serve this community for as long as I have.”
Before her time at the Town of Mountain Village, she worked for many years at Telluride Ski Resort working closely with Jim Wells and Ron Allred as Mountain Village became incorporated and plans for the gondola system began to formulate.
In her time with Mountain Village she helped oversee the adoption of the Mountain Village Comprehensive Plan, gondola improvements and upgrades, the establishment of San Miguel Authority for Regional Transportation and helped the town navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, among other things.
“Kim is a stalwart of the Mountain Village community, and I know Mountain Village staff and the residents alike will miss her leadership,” Wisor said. “Though Kim is irreplaceable, I look forward to stepping into her role for the moment and working with the amazing team she has assembled to continue to do great things on behalf of Mountain Village.”
