Park City police blotter: Snow removal ‘woke up the whole building’
The Park City Police Department last week logged a complaint about the noise from a snow-removal operation.
The police at 8:27 a.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 1 received a complaint from someone on Lowell Avenue, where heavy machinery was reportedly used at 5 a.m. for snow removal. The noise “woke up the whole building,” the police were told.
The person who contacted the police said there had been a similar occurrence before. The Police Department classified the case as suspected disturbing the peace.
It appeared from the police logs the heavy machinery was used by the private sector rather than a municipal crew.
Other incidents reported to the Police Department last week included:
