Longtime Park City person apparently misunderstands leash law

by Jay Hamburger THE PARK RECORD

The Park City Police Department on Sunday responded to a report of a dog running off a leash in City Park, finding a person who apparently misunderstood the leash law.

According to the police, an officer responded to Sullivan Road, a small street that borders City Park, at 10:32 a.m. An officer asked the dog owner to use a leash. The person, though, questioned whether the leash law applied in the situation on Sunday.

The person indicated they had "lived in town for 27 years and felt" he was "exempt" from the leash law, the police logs said.

"He was informed this is not the case," the Police Department logs said.

In an unrelated case, a dog was heard barking throughout the day on Round Valley Way on Saturday, Sept. 12. The police received the report at 8:37 p.m.
