Park City Councilman is ASC Utah’s landlord
March 29, 2011
Park City Councilman Alex Butwinski is with a firm that leases office space in the Snyderville Basin to the Talisker Corporation-controlled ASC Utah, Inc., the first-term City Councilman said in an affidavit City Hall requires to be filed annually outlining potential conflicts of interest.
According to Butwinski’s filing, he is the landlord of a building at 1840 Sun Peak Drive. The filing indicates the space is leased to American Ski Company Utah. That firm is under the umbrella of Talisker Corporation, the developer that has significant land holdings in the Park City area.
Butwinski said in a message he is the general partner of a firm that leases the space. He said he acts as the landlord for 10 other tenants as well.
Butwinski also included the connection to Talisker Corporation on his 2010 affidavit, the first he filed as a City Councilman following his victory on Election Day 2009.
Toronto-based Talisker Corporation, through a subsidiary, is a major player in Park City-area real estate, with its interests stretching from Empire Pass to Canyons. It also is involved in the Tuhaye development. Talisker Corporation has regular dealings with City Hall.
