Park City police reach the dog days of summer, literally
It is the dog days of summer for the Park City Police Department.
The police last week received a series of reports involving dogs, including at least one report of a dog being left in a vehicle. The other reports included a variety of cases.
The cases reported last week included:
- on Saturday, July 12 at 4:40 p.m., a dog was reported to have been left in a parked car along the 1300 block of Deer Valley Drive. The police were told one window was open, but the vehicle was not parked in the shade. Public police logs did not indicate whether the dog appeared to be in distress.
- on July 12 at 4:23 p.m., at least one dog was reportedly seen tied to a tree along the 1800 block of Bonanza Drive. The person who contacted the police was concerned since it was hot outside, according to police logs.
- on Friday, June 11 at 6:41 p.m., the police received a complaint about a dog jumping on a car on Monarch Drive. The police were told the dog caused unspecified damage.
- on Monday, July 7 at 9:37 p.m., the police received a complaint about three dogs that barked continuously. The dogs were in a yard on Hillside Avenue.
- on July 7 at 7:02 p.m., the police received a report about a dog exiting a residence and coming after two people on Upland Circle. Public police logs described the two people as riders, but the logs did not identify their means of transportation. The dog owner was belligerent, the police were told. The person who contacted the police wanted Summit County Animal Control to remind the dog owner of leash laws, police logs indicated.
The Park City Planning Commission on Wednesday approved a City Hall workforce or otherwise restricted housing development slated for the northern reaches of Old Town.
