Park City voters elected a new mayor Tuesday night.  City Councilman Andy Beerman defeated Dana Williams by more than 200 votes, with 1,318 votes to Williams' 1,100.   Beerman was in his second term on council.  He had run for Mayor in 2014, but lost to Jack Thomas.  Williams was Park City's mayor from 2002 - 2014.  

In an interview with KPCW Tuesday night, Beerman said he thought his victory meant that voters think the city is on the right track.  He also said he will continue to work towards what he calls a "complete community" that contains more affordable housing.

In the race for city council, Tim Henney was the top vote-getter, wining re-election with 1,592 votes.  Steve Joyce was  also elected with 1,493 votes, defeating Josh Hobson, who had 551 votes, and Mark Blue, who had 353 votes.  

Renai Bodley Miller became General Manager of KPCW in June, 2017. Previously, she was a reporter at KPCW. Renai is a 25 year veteran of the television news business. She was a news producer in Roanoke, VA, Richmond, VA, Miami, FL, and Washington, DC before moving to Utah in 1996 to be the Executive Producer at KSTU Fox 13. In 1999, she was promoted to Vice President/News Director. Under Renai’s tenure, Fox 13 expanded its news coverage from 2.5 hours to 10 hours of news a day. She retired in July, 2015, to enjoy her new home in Park City; but she couldn’t stay out of a newsroom for long. Less than a month later she signed on with KPCW as a reporter, and less than two years later she was promoted to General Manager when Larry Warren retired.
