Hunting reports continue in Park City
The Park City Police Department last week logged at least two reports involving hunters in the city.
Park City prohibits discharging a firearm inside the municipal limits, a law that effectively prohibits hunting. City Hall also bans hunting on land under municipal ownership, including large tracts of open space in places like Round Valley.
Public police logs did not provide details about the two cases.
In one of them, at 5:39 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 20, a woman was reported to be on Marsac Avenue firing an unspecified type of weapon. She was hunting, the police were told. Public police logs did not provide details about the location along Marsac Avenue, which runs from the Old Town roundabout to the upper reaches of Empire Pass.
Earlier that day, the police received a report of two men dressed in orange hunting clothes in the vicinity of Richardson Flat Road, located off S.R. 248 between Prospector and Quinn’s Junction. The police received the report at 4:18 p.m. The person who contacted the Police Department heard four gunshots, according to the police logs.
There has been a series of hunting reports to the police in recent weeks. Deer-hunting season using rifles ended on Sunday.
Nearly a dozen Park City and Summit County officials sat on a public panel Wednesday to outline the way forward on wildfire management and to answer questions from residents.
