Park City police blotter: Furniture left in a Dumpster
Department receives at least two reports involving construction locations
The Park City Police Department last week received at least two reports involving cases of different natures at construction locations.
On Wednesday, April 7 at 9:10 a.m., the police were told 1,000 construction workers had left vehicles on the street on or close to Webster Drive. The person who contacted the police wanted “them away right now,” according to police logs.
The number may be overstated since Park City construction projects typically are not staffed by 1,000 workers. Construction parking, though, has been a long-running issue in Park City.
On Monday, April 5 at 1:27 p.m., meanwhile, a general contractor reported someone left furniture in a Dumpster at a construction zone on Monarch Avenue.
Other incidents reported to the Police Department last week included:
On Sunday, April 11 at 10:07 p.m., the police received a complaint about loud music and what was described as “heavy partying” somewhere along Park Avenue. The police classified the case as suspected disturbing the peace.
