Heads of Park City Museum and Basin Recreation District Step Down




Two leaders of prominent organizations in Summit County are stepping down from their posts.


Snyderville Basin Recreation District executive director Brian Hanton and Park City Museum executive director Sandra Morrison have resigned.


The Administrative Control Board for Basin Recreation has called a special meeting to discuss and possibly approve an interim district director, Melissa O’Brien, to replace Brian Hanton tomorrow. O’Brien currently serves as the district’s Planning and Legal Affairs Manager. 


The meeting will be held Tuesday at 4 p.m. via Zoom. 


In a short statement, the Rec District said that the board had accepted Hanton’s resignation effective July 31. The board will conduct a national search for a new director. 


Hanton was named as Director of Basin Rec in 2016. He had worked as a manager for the district for 13 years before that.


In Park City, the president of the Board of Trustees for the Park City Museum announced that longtime director Sandra Morrison resigned last week. The board has named longtime member and volunteer Andrew Cohen as its interim executive director.


In a press release, Paige Anderson, the President of the Board of Trustees said Cohen’s, experience, skills, and energy will be invaluable to the museum as it continues to preserve and promote the area’s rich history. 


In a prepared statement, Cohen said he’s excited to lead the museum in honoring the past while telling the stories that make today’s Park City special. 


Morrison served as the museum’s director for the last 22 years.
