After getting push back from the senior community about moving to the Christian Center, Park City staff is back at square one and  is now considering new temporary locations for the senior population. Some of those considerations will be discussed at Thursday’s final city council meeting of the year.

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.
