Pitkin County officials tired of drone helicopters
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 (http://tinyurl.com/aqn45js ), commissioners want to develop guidelines for granting or denying a permit.
