The Park City Police Department received a string of complaints last week about hot-air balloons, with the callers telling the police the balloons were flying too low.
Some of the calls included:
On Saturday, Sept. 12 at 8:45 a.m. on Morning Sky Court, a small street on the edge of Park Meadows, that involved someone reporting a balloon on nearby Lake View Court.
A hot-air balloon was seen flying low over Evening Star Drive at 8:38 a.m. on Friday Sept.11, the police were told.
On Thursday, Sept. 10 at 1:41 p.m., a hot-air balloon was reportedly seen on Sunny Knoll Court. Public police logs do not provide details.
On Wednesday, Sept. 9 at 8:13 a.m., a hot-air balloon reportedly landed near a house on Evening Star Drive.

The police occasionally receive complaints about balloonists taking off or landing close to neighborhoods. It is unusual, though, for the Police Department to field calls about the balloons on four consecutive days.
