Known for its sellout shows lampooning everything Park City, the Park City Follies has been a long-time, live performance fundraiser for the Egyptian Theater.

Although a live performance could not happen last year, they are still hopeful for one in 2021.

In the meantime, they will be debuting a Valentine's Day Park City Follies online. Creative team member Josh Mann gives us the scoop.

Josh Mann has lived in Summit County for 8 years. He became involved in politics in 2012 when he started filming and posting County Council meetings to YouTube, that evolved into the local news blog the Park Rag. Mann says he decided to run for council when he noticed seven unopposed country races would appear on this November’s ballot. Mann is running as a write-in for the Summit County council seat E against Democratic incumbent Glenn Wright. Mann says he wants to focus on creating what he calls a low development, low growth environment.

As reported, the major topic for the Synderville Planning Commission Tuesday night, in a General Plan Public Hearing, was the Jeremy Ranch neighborhood objecting to more commercial density in their area. However, the comments, from nearly 20 speakers, touched on other topics as well. Rick Brough has more.

After more than a year of videotaping and posting the meetings of the Summit County Council online, Josh Mann is ready to expand his citizen news efforts with the Park Rag. KPCW's Leslie Thatcher has more.
