Ever so slightly, as the recession continued, the workload increased and changes were made to benefits packages, the morale among the rank-and-file City Hall workers began to slip in 2010, according to the results of a survey taken each year of the people who work for the municipal government.

What department do you work in?
How long have you been employed by PCMC?

Gee, that's really hard to figure out who is answering the question. If it was truly anonymous, I bet the scores would be a lot lower.

Does anyone have that email from the King that spun the results with him saying that the Park Record will spin the results to be negative. Could you forward it on to the Park Record. Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.

Survey should be done over through the internet and the results should be better than two years ago. After all that is why Linda Galindo Consulting was paid lots of money - to show the city manager how to do his job. I forgot he delegated his job to the Assistant City Manager and the Assistant City Manager has delegated his job to the intern to the Assistant City Manager. Something like that.

Anybody else seen The Office? When "The Bobs" (consultants) show up you know the ship has run aground.

On a totally unrelated note: Why does this comment board assume I live in Sandy? Is that some kind of default value in the programming or what?

I was wondering why it takes three people to be the city manager when it only took Toby Ross one person. Plus this is when Park City was busy with the Olympics and all. But now, really he needs three people. Perhaps this means Mr. Baklay is inept in the position that he currently holds.

I think it is time for another "Save our Snow" event. This crap about moral is not fun and is boring. Mayor put down the geetar and get on this important stuff. And where is that carbon diet specialist, I feel a little heavy and need to get on a diet.

Moral slips "Ever so Slightly"...what a joke, moral has been in the toilet since 2003 when Bakaly took over. Many good and talented people in the organization have left because of Bakaly's autocratic management style and now other organizations are benifiting from their skills and abilities. Many of those that remain show up every day because they're professionals and for reasons of their own, have decided to stay, but Bakaly is not one of those reasons. For such a small town it's hard to believe that a mayor and city council can be so out of touch.

The last descent City Manager was Toby Ross whom ran the City like a fine machine. Because of Bakaly and Dana it is broke beyond recognition with departments in dissarray, people quitting, loss of experienced managers, costs through the roof, and numerous consultants sucking the city dry. And during all this time all City Council (Alex Butwinski, Candace Erickson, Cindy Matsumoto, Joe Kernan, Liza Simpson, Dana Williams) can do is sit in their soft brown chairs and admire the sound of their own voice. They are all as lazy as the City Manager, who should be run out on a rail. If you don't get rid of Bakaly you will never get rid of him, because nobody would ever hire such a wreck.

When is the next save our snow event? And what does the Sustainability Department actually do? Why is Myles Rademan still on the tax payer dime? Why do you need three people to do the City Manager job? Why are people quitting? Why did Ivie quit five different times? Why is Tom Daley seen drunk in the bars on Main Street?

Houston we have a problem?

And now the individual that developed and introduced the successful award winning Silver Creek Bio-Filter and built the nationally recognized Park City Environmental Data Base Viewer and much more has RESIGNED! Wow Good going Bakaly way to run em out. Now the Mayor can sell all the contaminated real estate he wants with no one to object and prove him wrong. Wake up Park city, your on a race down hill.

You really expect the City Council and Manager and Mayor Pot Smoking Dana to get off their dead butts to do anything about anything? They are more happy screwing local contractors out of money that is owed to them and other crap. They are the most worthless group of people I have ever met. A model of the aholes we have in Washington DC. No wonder moral sucks, I would hate to work for them too. LOL on the save our swow event an carbon diet specialist. I did not beleive it until I looked it up that they are really hiring for such a person. The mine tailings is also a fiasco with the Council Legal Mayor and City Manager in bed with Talisker so deep there they stink.

This is the SECRET recipe for a Park City City Manager.
One plump unaccomplished California yuppie with a degree.
One Mayor deeply cooked.
One local paper that has deleted from the dictionary incompetent and corruption.
One cup of arse kissers.
One seasonal community that pays no attention.
One Myles Rademan (not sure what it does in the recipe, but has been in previous recipes).
Several deaf, dumb, and blind City Council people, cooked equally as the Mayor.
Add several years of cooking and bogus employee surveys.
Cook for several years.
Enjoy your tom bakaly with lots of wine to hide the taste. Wine left over should be given to staff.
Shhhh
