City Hall has organized an event on Wednesday honoring retiring Mayor Dana Williams.

The event, billed as a chance for Parkites to bid him farewell and thank him for his service, is scheduled from 3 p.m. until 5 p.m. at the Park City Municipal Athletic & Recreation Center. The event is open to the public and there will be refreshments.

It is scheduled to day before the final Park City Council meeting with Williams presiding.

Williams is in the final weeks of his third term in office. He did not seek re-election this year. He won the mayor's office in 2001 and took office in early 2002, just before the Winter Olympics. Williams was unopposed when he won his second term and then secured a third term by beating his predecessor in the office, Brad Olch, in 2009.

The Wednesday event is expected to be one in a series of honors for Williams before the end of the year.

Mayor-elect Jack Thomas takes office in early January.
