PARK CITY, Utah – The mayor of Park City earns $45,366.72 per year in the community’s top elected post.
But the person in that role also receives family health insurance valued at $21,522.48 annually. They can opt to take the value of the insurance in cash.
The mayor, meanwhile, receives another $250 per month in a car allowance.
A member of the Park City Council, meanwhile, earns $23,435.04 annually and receives the family health insurance benefit, which can be taken as cash. The total hits $44,957.52 for each member of the City Council.
The elected officials at that time were worried that the compensation that was offered then was inadequate for the work and was a deterrent to attracting a diverse field of candidates. The increases were seen as means to make serving in public office available to a broader group of Parkites.
