The Park City Police Department in the middle of December received several complaints about noise, including in Prospector and Old Town.
The cases are likely a result of the crowds arriving for ski vacations and could continue as more people head to Park City for the holidays, typically one of the busiest stretches of the year in the tourism industry.
Some of the cases included:
• on Sunday, Dec. 18 at 9:04 p.m., the police received a complaint about loud music in a Prospector Avenue residence upstairs from the person who contacted the agency. The police were told it appeared a party was occurring and the “building is shaking,” according to department logs. The police classified the case as suspected disturbing the peace.
• on Saturday, Dec. 17 at 9:44 p.m., the Police Department received a complaint about a party, described as loud, on Daly Avenue. There was “heavy bass music,” the police were told. The person who contacted the police attempted to contact the people at the party, but they did not answer, according to public police logs. The person “just wants them to turn it down,” the police said. The department logged the case as suspected disturbing the peace.
• on Wednesday, Dec. 14 at 12:21 a.m., the Police Department was told of noisy people in a hot tub on Empire Avenue. The hot tub was located in a courtyard, the police were told.
The cases did not appear to be serious and the descriptions of the cases in the police logs were similar to those reported to the police during traditionally busy times. It is likely there will be additional cases with the crowds expected to become larger in the period between Christmas and New Year’s.
Other incidents reported to the Police Department last week included:
On Sunday, Dec. 18 at 1:40 p.m., the police were told of a valve on Sun Ridge Road that was “pouring water out into” a storm drain. The person who contacted the police indicated the water at the time of the call was “not causing a traffic hazard,” according to the logs.
