Cooperstown Trustees Pass Drone Ordinance

Cooperstown Trustees

Pass Drone Ordinance

Cooperstown resident Bill Waller, who has opposed the proposed drone law at every public hearing, expresses his concerns once more ahead of the Board of Trustees vote on the revised drone law. The law was tabled at the Trustee meeting in March to be revised by Village Attorney Martin Tillapaugh. The revised law was presented at this evening’s board meeting, and was ultimately passed, creating a permitting system for drone flight from Village property. (Parker Fish/AllOTSEGO.com)

Cooperstown Trustees Table Drone Law

Cooperstown Board

Tables Drone Law

Drone owner Bill Waller, left, addresses the Cooperstown Village Board Monday, one of several speakers objecting to the proposed drone law that the board was scheduled to vote on later in the meeting. The drone law has become a hot topic in Cooperstown, with questions being raised as to what authority the village hold over the unmanned aircrafts, and what power is reserved for the federal government. Waller argued that the proposed regulations wouldn’t add anything beneficial to existing federal law, which is enforced by the FAA. With uncertainty still looming over the wording of some sections of the law, the board tabled the proposition to be revised before voting on it. (Parker Fish/AllOTSEGO.com)
