Park City Councilor-elect Max Doilney, who is a businessman, said he intends to weigh decisions at the Marsac Building through the lens of someone with a small business such as himself. He captured a seat on the City Council on Election Day, finishing third, and is slated to be sworn into office in early January.
Park City Councilor-elect Max Doilney is the owner of Corner Store Pub & Grill and Corner Sports, which are both at the base of Park City Mountain Resort. He said he has no formal relationship with PCMR or the Colorado-based owner of the resort, Vail Resorts. He explained the fortunes of his businesses are not tied to PCMR or Vail Resorts any more so than many others in the community that rely on the resort economy.
Former Park City Manager Diane Foster said in an interview it was an “awesome” run as the top staffer at the Marsac Building.

Former Park City Manager Diane Foster remained employed by City Hall through Nov. 2, approximately one month after the municipal government announced a personnel move that was described as a separation. She was relieved of the duties of the city manager starting on Sept. 30, an agreement between Foster and City Hall shows.
Former Park City Manager Diane Foster said the City Hall staffer selected as the interim city manager is talented and qualified to become the permanent city manager, a scenario that appears likely. Matt Dias had been the assistant city manager under Foster.
