City Market fires director

Indianapolis City Market has a new director after the board ousted Joe Dayan, who had overseen a dramatic transformation of the Indianapolis landmark from a glorified food court into more of a public market.

It was simply “time for a change,” said Bob Whitt, the board’s president. He wouldn’t say whether the board was unhappy with Dayan, who took charge in June 2007 and will continue to draw a salary of $72,000 until a severance agreement is reached.

The interim replacement for Dayan, Jim Reilly, ran the market a few years back. Reilly will draw a salary of $80,000 until a search committee finds a permanent replacement, Whitt said.
