Official named grand marshal of parade

Myles Rademan, who served as City Hall’s longtime public affairs director before leaving his full-time position in mid-2008, will be the grand marshal of Park City’s Independence Day parade, the parade organizers said.

The Park City Ambassadors, under the umbrella of the Park City Chamber/Bureau, said in a statement Rademan’s selection is based on his "established and distinguished leadership roles in Park City."

The statement points to Rademan’s involvement in City Hall’s open-space program and his pivotal position in City Hall’s preparations for the 2002 Winter Olympics. He was the staffer who handled many of City Hall’s open-space negotiations and acted as the No. 2 person in the municipal government’s Olympic preparations.

He remains with City Hall on a contract basis. Rademan arrived at City Hall as the director of planning in 1987 and was shifted to the public affairs position two years later. He was part of the City Hall brain trust during the 1990s, as the local government grappled with the effects of a fast-growing population.

Rademan, meanwhile, is the co-director of Leadership Park City, a program meant to prepare people for top-ranking roles in the area. Many of the program’s graduates hold important roles in the local government, businesses and not-for-profit groups.

The Independence Day parade is scheduled on Saturday, July 4 at 11 a.m. on Main Street. The organizers expect the parade will feature 70 floats.

It is one of two large parades held annually on Main Street, with attendance on Independence Day typically beating the crowd at the Miners Day parade, held each Labor Day.

The Chamber/Bureau says the parade this year will celebrate the 125th anniversary of Park City’s founding in addition to Independence Day.
