(Boise, ID) –The Board of Ada County Commissioners will be holding a public hearing on Tuesday, May 15, 2018 at 9 AM to consider Ordinance No. 833 that would amend Ada County code to include a new section for unmanned aircraft. This public hearing will occur during the Open Business Meeting in the Commissioners’ conference room on the 3rd floor of the Ada County Courthouse.

The attached ordinance would amend Title 5, Chapter 4 Offenses Code to add a new section (“Unmanned Aircraft”) to protect the safety and privacy of Ada County residents regarding the use of unmanned aircraft within Ada County.

The purpose of this ordinance is not to preempt the Federal Aviation Administration regulations (FARs), but to operate in conjunction with those rules to promote public safety and welfare of Ada County and its residents while reorganizing the FAAs enforcement capabilities.

The ordinance requires a 2/3 majority vote to pass.
