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)

Drone Law In Works

According to Katz, the law would bring about a $250 fine for violating the law. Board member Richard Sternberg challenged that the law should carry a heavier fine of $500, but the maximum fine allowed by the state is only $250. (Parker Fish/AllOTSEGO.com)
