The midnight whistle
July 4, 2008
The 10 o’clock Whistle on Main Street, which sounds each night at 10 p.m., malfunctioned for much of the last week, going off at midnight instead of its normal time.
Pace Erickson, a Public Works Department official, says crews renovating the Park City Museum, which is in a building at the same location, disabled the whistle. When it was turned on again, the computer that operates the whistle reset to a default time of midnight, Erickson says.
The midnight whistles started on or before June 28 and lasted until midweek. The whistle sounded at about 10:20 p.m. on Wednesday.
