Ex-city attorney tapped for Planning Department

City Hall plans to hire a former Park City attorney on a short-term basis to help handle development issues as the local government replaces the outgoing Planning Department chief.

Park City Manager Tom Bakaly said Wednesday Jim Carter, who once was the city attorney, will likely serve for three or four months. Carter was the city attorney in the early 1990s, but the dates of his service were not immediately available.

Bakaly said Carter is a certified planner and works in the private sector. The city manager said Carter will be a "technical resource," working an estimated 10 to 15 hours each week during the contract’s term.

He is "very familiar with what we do," Bakaly said, adding, "We wanted someone who could quickly be a resource."

Meanwhile, Bakaly plans to assign Gary Hill, the city’s budget and grants manager, to assist with running the department. Hill will especially help with budget and personnel issues.

Pat Putt, the Planning director, leaves City Hall on Feb. 27.
