Mayor remains a licensed home seller

(Park Record) In an affidavit filed at City Hall recently, Mayor Dana Williams indicated he remains a licensed real estate agent nearly two years after he stepped down from a high-level position in the industry.

The affidavit lists potential conflicts of interest and is required annually of Williams and the members of the Park City Council. The mayor's did not provide details about his role in the real estate industry. He said in an interview, though, his name is listed in a network of real estate agents.

Under that arrangement, if Williams refers a homebuyer to an agent and a sale is finalized, the mayor would receive a referral fee. Williams said he has not made a referral.

Williams had been the managing broker of Coldwell Banker's Park City office before the firm forced him to step down from that position in mid-2008. Coldwell Banker at the time indicated the mayoral duties did not leave enough time for Williams to spend on the job at the real estate firm.

He had been the managing broker for 18 months and had been an agent with Coldwell Banker for nearly 19 years prior to the promotion.

Meanwhile, Williams did not acknowledge his barista job at Park City Coffee Roaster in the affidavit. He said in an interview he works at the coffee shop's Kimball Junction location and does not envision there being a conflict between his mayoral role and the barista job.
