Officials list potential conflicts

Mayor Dana Williams and the five members of the Park City Council have filed annual statements with City Hall declaring what conflicts might exist between their official duties and family or financial interests.

The disclosures resemble those they have filed in previous years. There has not been widespread criticism of the current elected officials for having conflicts of interest.

Williams declares his house on Doc Holliday Drive and says he is a managing broker with Coldwell Banker Residential Realty.

Marianne Cone declares her house on Prospect Avenue. She notes her husband, David Chaplin, is on the Park City Board of Education. The School District and City Hall infrequently have important business together.

Candy Erickson declares her house on Little Kate Road and her jobs with Park City Mountain Resort and Cole Sport.

She notes her husband, Bruce Erickson, works for Stantec, a consulting firm. He is a former Park City Planning Commissioner who is working with City Hall on a package of changes to the development rules in the North of Main district.

Roger Harlan notes his house on Geronimo Court and Jim Hier includes his house on Morning Sky Court.

Joe Kernan lists his residence on Stryker Lane and says he owns Good Earth Recycling, which he says has "contracts with numerous local businesses, individuals, and non-profits."

He also says he owns property at the Carriage House on Prospector Avenue and he holds a minority interest in 2,500 shares of American Skiing Company, which owns The Canyons and other mountain resorts.

Kernan says he owns 50 percent of County Curbside Inc., a recycling company that holds a contract with Summit County to collect recyclables in part of Park City and all of South Summit.

The six officials also declare that they do not plan to represent people or businesses in their dealings with City Hall.
