SUMMIT COUNTY – Thad Noll, a former Breckenridge resident and employee of Vail Resorts, was named the new assistant county manager for Summit County government.Noll will begin Nov. 1. He replaces Steve Hill, who will become the part-time special projects manager for the county.”Thad’s skills in management, planning, capital projects and teamwork will be a big asset to Summit County government,” said Ron Holliday county manager.

Noll will head the facilities and transportation department of county government. He joins associate Sue Boyd, also an assistant county manager, who heads community services.Noll will relocate to Summit County from Colorado Springs, where he is the senior transportation planner for the city. “I’m thrilled to be coming back to Summit County in this capacity,” Noll said. “Besides the obvious benefits of being back in the mountains, I’m excited about the opportunity to be a part of the county’s future.” Noll has 25 years of experience in planning, public works and transit operations. He formerly sat on the county’s Summit Stage Transit Advisory Board which helps direct the free public bus service.

Originally from New Jersey, Noll first moved to Summit County in 1993. He had worked at Keystone Resort as the public works director. He left for Colorado Springs in 2001. Noll expects to move by the end of October. His wife, Lisa Bennison Noll, also worked for Keystone in the late 1990s as director of hotel operations.

Hill, who was assistant county manager for two years, said he accepted the part-time position to spend more time with his family. In the new position, he plans to focus on the “Summit Legacy” projects funded by voters’ approval of a property tax extension last fall.Those projects include a new recycling facility at the landfill and a new Community Care Clinic.Kim Marquis can be contacted at (970) 668-3998, ext. 249, or at
