A realtor who also owns a homeowners association management business and sits on the Snyderville Basin Planning Commission won a midterm nomination to the Park City Council on Thursday night, winning the selection of 17 to fill the seat vacated by Mayor Nann Worel.
Ryan Dickey’s swearing-in date was not set at Thursday’s meeting, but he is expected to step up to city council soon.
The city council voted unanimously for Dickey’s nomination after receiving lengthy public testimony in support of several of the nominees.
It appears that Dickey and Laura Suesser, who is a member of the Park City Planning Commission, emerged as the two finalists during the discussion. A background from the Planning Commission sounded interesting when councilors talked about the land.
Councilman Max Doilney said the selection was the toughest he had made as an elected official. He noted that a better relationship is needed between the municipal government and the county courthouse, explaining his support for Dickey’s nomination.
Councilwoman Becca Gerber, who nominated Dickey, also highlighted regional collaboration in her support for him.
The midterm appointment expires in early 2024. Dickey would have to run for a full four-year term in the 2023 mayoral election to stay in office.
