You can hear the changes at City Hall



ST. PETERSBURG -- Used to be you called City Hall and a recorded message of former Mayor Rick Baker's booming voice would begin telling you about all the "great" things happening in the city.

Don't expect such marketing from new Mayor Bill Foster.

City spokeswomen Beth Herendeen said Foster, who took office Monday, declined to record the messages that greet callers on hold for City Hall.

Instead, Mike Ramsey, the city's television station manager, is now the voice of St. Petersburg.
