The Park City City Council received a lengthy briefing on the financial health of the city at their meeting Thursday night. Despite relatively strong financials and better than expected summer sales tax numbers, the council is still worried about the months ahead.

There was actually quite a bit of good news at Thursday’s financial update to city council. Sales tax revenues have outperformed expectations this summer, Park City’s credit rating is good, even great, and the city’s capacity to take on debt is in really good shape.

Summit County is looking toward the future of regional transit and is considering a number of solutions for the region’s growing mass transit system. “Micro transit” options, similar to the ones Park City decided against in 2017, are also being looked at.


Park City Municipal is hoping to finalize and accept a revised budget for fiscal year 2021 by mid-October. A steep decline is forecasted for the city’s sales tax revenue and travel visits but everything could change at a moment’s notice when it comes to COVID-19.


Worry about everything, panic about nothing was the mindset adopted by the Park City City Council during 2021 budget discussions at their meeting on Tuesday.

Park City is five months into a 10-year vision for the future of the community called “Park City Vision 2020.” Despite COVID-19 throwing a monkey wrench into 2020, the city will still be driving ahead with their long-term plans.


The timing could not have been much worse. Three months into 2020 and the world turning upside down amid the COVID-19 pandemic is not an ideal time to be launching Park City’s new 10-year vision for the community.

Park City Council approved moving ahead with the 500-stall park and ride at Quinn’s Junction known as the frontage road lot. The project design is about half finished and the council hopes to have it shovel ready by the end of September.

About a year ago, Park City Council asked staff to look at three lots in the Quinn’s Junction area as possible park and ride locations. The original task was to find the cheapest, easiest, quickest way to create a Bus Transit Route and lighten traffic on SR 248.
