The Del Mar City Council announced the appointment of Scott W. Huth as City Manager for the City of Del Mar. Mr. Huth was the unanimous choice of the Council to serve as City Manager after an extensive recruitment and competitive search process initiated by the City Council in June 2011. “We are very excited to welcome Scott Huth to the City of Del Mar,” Mayor Don Mosier stated. “He is an accomplished executive with a strong record of working with residents, businesses and staff to serve the community. Scott will be a perfect fit for Del Mar.”

Huth, a native San Diegan, has worked in local coastal communities for more than 28 years. He has been the Public Services Director at the City of Coronado since 1995, overseeing a budget of $11 million and 60 full and part time positions.  Huth has also served as Chairman of the San Diego METRO Wastewater Technical Advisory Committee of the San Diego METRO Wastewater Joint Powers Authority since 2005.

“I am very honored to be selected Del Mar’s City Manager. I am thrilled to serve the City Council, the residents and the business community of Del Mar as their new City Manager,” said Scott Huth. “Del Mar is a beautiful, unique coastal community with a highly engaged population. I look forward to working with all members of the community and the dedicated staff to continue progress on the Council’s priority projects and to enhance the services we deliver to the community.”

Mr. Huth is a member of the International City/County Management Association, and holds a Master of Business Administration degree from the University of Redlands, and a Bachelor of Arts degree in (Resources and Environmental) Geography from San Diego State University.  Scott and his wife Rhonda, son Ryan and daughter Britt live in the community of Mt. Helix.  Scott will be officially starting work the first of the year but he has already spent a lot of time getting to know the community and intends to continue that effort over the holidays.  “Both Rhonda and I enjoy walking and cycling in Del Mar and we are really getting to know Del Mar from a pedestrian point of view,” added Scott. “I am looking forward to January.”
