Park City police blotter


Idling enforcement continues

The Park City Police Department last week continued its enforcement of City Hall’s prohibition of idling, logging at least three cases and indicating no violations were found at other times when an officer was looking for vehicles left with engines running.

The three cases were reported in quick succession on Saturday, April 16. The first was logged at 11:25 p.m. followed by one at 11:40 p.m. and another at 11:59 p.m. Each of the cases was reported on Main Street and at least two of them were on the 400 block of the street.

Park City has a law against idling a vehicle for longer than one minute with exemptions to protect the safety of people and animals inside. It is part of City Hall’s wide-ranging environmental efforts.

Other incidents reported to the Police Department last week included:

Three adults on skateboards were reportedly seen in a park along Main Street. The report was logged at 6:18 p.m. on the 500 block of Main Street, but it was unclear from public police logs which park they were seen inside. The person who contacted the police was not sure whether skateboarders were allowed at the location.
