Park City Announces Its New City Manager

Dec 17, 2019

Matt Dias has been named as Park City Manager. His contract is scheduled to be approved by the council January 9, 2020.

Matt Dias – who has served as interim Park City Manager since October- will now serve in that capacity full time. 

While the announcement was made on Monday, the Park City Council won’t vote on Dias’s employment agreement until its January 9th meeting.

Dias was hired in 2013 as Assistant City Manager. He was named Interim Manager in October after the council voted to sever its employment contract with then manager Diane Foster. At the time, the council gave no specific reason for that separation.

According to a press release, Dias led the city’s efforts during the Park City trademark discussion and Treasure Hill open space acquisition. He also represents Park City at the Utah State Legislature and co-manages the Leadership Park City Program.

In a prepared statement, Dias said he’s honored to be considered for the job and feels fortunate to work with a dedicated and professional team.

Park City Mayor Andy Beerman added in that statement that he and the council are confident in Dias’s ability to serve the community saying during his interim role, Dias has demonstrated strong leadership and management skills, and will implement the programs and critical priorities the council has put in place.
