Beach debris

For those of you who haven't been out to the beach lately, the plastic has started to wash in again. The high tide line is littered with plastic of every color and size. The adjacent picture is what was collected in about an hour from 16th Street South this past weekend. It's like this all over. Please consider organizing a group, or going out individually, and helping to remove some of this plastic debris before it washes back out to sea. We need to take the time to make a concerted effort for the sake of our oceans. Contact KBB Volunteer Coordinator, Desiree Lesko, at if you need assistance with organizing a cleanup or to report your cleanup efforts. 

Drone Usage Information

.  The use of a drone is permissible, but must comply with federal and state laws.  Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations and FL State Statutes 330.41 and 934.50 pertaining to drones are very lengthy, so the “Readers Digest” version below is provided:
-All drones must be registered with the FAA
-Drones must be in visual sight of the operator at all times
-The operator must contact the airport or air traffic control tower before flying within five miles of an airport
-Drones cannot be flown near or over sensitive infrastructure; In adverse weather conditions; or under the influence of alcohol or drugs
-The operator may not use a drone equipped with an imaging device to record an image of privately owned real property without written consent 
The following paraphrased bullet points from FL State Statute 330.41(3) outline the City’s limitations on codifying an Ordinance:
-The authority to regulate the operation of unmanned aircraft systems is vested in the state except as provided in federal regulations, authorizations, or exemptions.
-Except as otherwise expressly provided, a political subdivision may not enact or enforce an ordinance or resolution relating to the design, manufacture, testing, maintenance, licensing, registration, certification, or operation of an unmanned aircraft system, including airspace, altitude, flight paths, equipment or technology requirements; the purpose of operations; and pilot, operator, or observer qualifications, training, and certification.
-This subsection does not limit the authority of a local government to enact or enforce local ordinances relating to nuisances, voyeurism, harassment, reckless endangerment, property damage, or other illegal acts arising from the use of unmanned aircraft systems if such laws or ordinances are not specifically related to the use of an unmanned aircraft system for those illegal acts.
You can always have an officer respond by contacting our non-emergency line at 321-868-3251/3260.  The police will ensure the drone operator is in compliance with all applicable laws.
