Mayor Andy Beerman and the Park City Council Announce Separation of City Manager, Diane Foster, from Park City Municipal Corporation

 

Park City, UT - On Tuesday, October 1, 2019, Mayor Andy Beerman and the Park City Council announced the separation of the City Manager, Diane Foster, from the organization. The Mayor and City Council thank Ms. Foster for her over 10 years of dedicated service to Park City Municipal Corporation.

During her tenure, Foster brought focus to City Council goals in 2014 by introducing the concept of Critical Priorities and helping to further develop the City’s workforce by introducing the City’s first leadership program for staff. Foster played a key role in the Armstrong, Osguthorpe, Bonanza, Treasure Hill, and Snow Creek Pastures open space acquisitions; led staff in making great progress on our Community Critical Priorities; worked with Sundance to move its festival date from MLK weekend; helped launch the Arts & Culture District; and is well-respected by City staff and community partners. “Fortunately, due to her efforts, we have a resilient and committed organization, and I am confident it will continue to meet upcoming challenges and focus on implementation, efficiency, and accountability,” Mayor Beerman said.

While the Mayor and City Council initiated the move, the separation is amicable. Foster said, “While I will miss working with the amazingly talented City staff, I respect the Mayor and Council’s decision. The opportunity to make a small difference in the lives of my co-workers and in our community is one that I will cherish forever.” Mayor Beerman added, “Park City has been fortunate to have a succession of managers who have prioritized creating a culture of fairness, professionalism, integrity, and inclusion. Diane added to that legacy, and we wish her well.”

Effective immediately, Assistant City Manager Matt Dias will be named Interim City Manager. Dias has the confidence of the Mayor and City Council who plan to discuss with Dias the opportunity to take on the permanent role. External recruitment is not planned at this time.

Foster and Park City’s elected officials will not be making any other verbal or written statements about Foster’s departure.
