Park City police blotter
October 3, 2017
The Park City Police Department on Friday, Sept. 29, dealt with three parking issues in quick succession, including two cases along Main Street
A package-delivery truck was reportedly seen parked in a crosswalk on a narrow section of Main Street at 11:11 a.m. Traffic backed up as drivers had difficulty passing the truck, the police said.
A cement truck was reported to be parked in a location where it blocked a section of the street on Holiday Ranch Loop Road. The Police Department received the report at 11 a.m. and indicated the truck created a traffic hazard.
At 10:57 a.m. on Main Street, meanwhile, a delivery vehicle was reported to be parked in a place where Main Street narrows. It was also parked against traffic, the police said. An officer printed a copy of Park City's parking rules and warned the driver verbally.
The Police Department regularly receives parking complaints, particularly on or close to Main Street. The complaints sometimes involve delivery or construction vehicles like the cases on Sept. 29.
