The Park City Police Department recently logged a few reports of people being spotted atop or close to the Masonic water tank, which is situated off Mellow Mountain Road.
The reports continued a string of similar incidents this summer at the site, which offers coveted views of Old Town and Park City Mountain Resort. People are prohibited from climbing atop the water tank. Police officers typically issue a trespassing warning if someone is found there.
On Saturday, Aug. 23 at 6:24 p.m., two people were seen on the tank. They were both foreigners, the police said. They left when asked. The day before, meanwhile, three people and a dog were seen on the water tank.
On Sunday, Aug. 17 at 4:52 p.m., three people were seen on the tank.
Other incidents reported to the Police Department last week included:
