selected as next City Administrator
City of Coeur d’Alene Mayor Steve Widmyer announced today he will appoint City Finance Director Troy Tymesen as the next city administrator, effective January 1.

Mayor Widmyer’s appointment will be brought to the City Council for confirmation at its December 5 meeting.

“The City of Coeur d’Alene has consistently had a strong fiscal future in large part due to Troy’s responsible leadership and advice to myself, past mayors, and City Councils over the years,” Mayor Widmyer said. “I’m proud to bring forward Troy as the next administrator for this community.”

Tymesen, 54, began his career with Coeur d’Alene in August 2000 after leaving Key Bank, where he was the regional sales manager. He briefly served as interim City Administrator in 2014 prior to the hiring of Jim Hammond, who announced he will retire at the end of December.

“I’m honored that the mayor has asked me to be the next city administrator,” Tymesen said, “and it’s a privilege to continue my public service for the Coeur d’Alene community.”

During his 17 years with the City, Tymesen has served as its representative on the Coeur d’Alene Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors and the Coeur d’Alene Economic Development Corporation (formerly JobsPlus), is a member of the Ray and Joan Kroc Center Salvation Army Advisory Board, the North Idaho College Foundation Board, is a Sunrise Rotarian, and a strong supporter of United Way.
