Drones need permit

Newton News: Drones need permit

Newton City Council passed an ordinance requiring drone owners to register their drone with the City Clerk and potentially obtain a permit to fly them over public parks. The vote was 16 to 6 in favor of regulating the drones.  The ordinance requires owners to keep their drone in their line of sight, and prohibits flying them over private property and emergency situations. Permits are required to fly a drone over schools and city property. Registration costs $10 through the Parks & Recreation Department with fines at $50. The regulations apply to anyone in Newton who owns and operates a drone weighing less than 55 pounds.
