Park City police blotter: Generator close to residence prompts a complaint
The Park City Police Department last week received a complaint about a generator that was running close to a residence.
The call was logged on Thursday, Oct. 14 at 10:12 p.m., close to a residence on Park Avenue.
The person who contacted the police was apparently told by the generator operator it would be turned off at 8 p.m. and was then told the stop time would be 9 p.m. and, eventually, 10 p.m., at the latest, according to department logs. The person wanted the operator “reminded of the noise ordinance,” public police logs indicated. The police logged the case as suspected disturbing the peace.
The Police Department occasionally receives noise complaints about equipment such as generators. In many cases the complaints involve a work crew.
Other incidents reported to the Police Department last week include:
