Pitkin County officials tired of drone helicopters

ASPEN, Colo. (AP) - Pitkin County commissioners are creating new guidelines for drone helicopters that take pictures around the city over concerns they violate privacy rights.

The remote-controlled helicopters are being used to give potential homebuyers a birds-eye view of property and for broadcasting bicycle races.

If passed, a new law would prohibit helicopters from filming in the area unless approved by the commissioners.

According to the Aspen Daily News, commissioners want to develop guidelines for granting or denying a permit.
