Park City Convening Blue Ribbon Commission To Evaluate City Employee Compensation


Due to a low unemployment rate and high housing costs, Park City Municipal has a difficult time hiring—and keeping—employees. The Park City Council recently approved a $130,000 contract with human resources consulting firm Mercer to assess what the city can do to fill its open positions.

But the city also wants input from the community, so it’s forming a blue ribbon commission in an effort to improve employee recruitment and retention.

The city requires participants to be full-time Park City residents and registered voters. The blue ribbon commission will meet periodically from the end of January through March. The group will provide input to Mercer on the project.

Applications are due Jan. 17 and can be found at parkcity.org.
