City-County Councilor Jackie Nytes was chosen as the next CEO of the Indianapolis-Marion County Public Library on Thursday night by the system's board of trustees.

Nytes, a former library executive, is expected to succeed Laura Bramble, who has been CEO since early 2007. Terms of Nytes' employment, including the starting date, still need to be finalized. The board voted 7-0 for her approval.

Nytes is executive director of the Mapleton Fall Creek Development Corp. and City-County Councilor in District 9. No stranger to the local library, she was the system's associate director of management services in the 1990s and served as chief financial officer from 1998 to 2001.

She also was director of Carmel-Clay Public Library from 1981 to 1988.

Nytes was selected from an initial list of 22 candidates that was whittled down to seven earlier this year and to two in late August.

Tom Sloan, associate executive director of Reaching Across Illinois Library System in suburban Chicago Burr Ridge, was the remaining finalist for the position.

Bradbury Associates Inc. of Indianapolis conducted the national job search.

Bramble announced plans in May to retire by the end of the year. She has been in the library industry for 41 years. Her most recent annual salary was $114,000.

Nytes will become the library system's 14th director since 1873. The system operates 23 branches and has a annual budget of more than $38 million. More than 5 million patrons visit the local libraries each year.

  1. John, unfortunately CTRWD wants to put the tank(s) right next to a nature preserve and at the southern entrance to Carmel off of Keystone. Not exactly the kind of message you want to send to residents and visitors (come see our tanks as you enter our city and we build stuff in nature preserves...

  2. 85 feet for an ambitious project? I could shoot ej*culate farther than that.

  3. I tried, can't take it anymore. Untill Katz is replaced I can't listen anymore.

  4. Perhaps, but they've had a very active program to reduce rainwater/sump pump inflows for a number of years. But you are correct that controlling these peak flows will require spending more money - surge tanks, lines or removing storm water inflow at the source.

  5. All sewage goes to the Carmel treatment plant on the White River at 96th St. Rainfall should not affect sewage flows, but somehow it does - and the increased rate is more than the plant can handle a few times each year. One big source is typically homeowners who have their sump pumps connect into the sanitary sewer line rather than to the storm sewer line or yard. So we (Carmel and Clay Twp) need someway to hold the excess flow for a few days until the plant can process this material. Carmel wants the surge tank located at the treatment plant but than means an expensive underground line has to be installed through residential areas while CTRWD wants the surge tank located further 'upstream' from the treatment plant which costs less. Either solution works from an environmental control perspective. The less expensive solution means some people would likely have an unsightly tank near them. Carmel wants the more expensive solution - surprise!
