Council Hopes To Attract Pilotless Drones



What a boost to the economy of Payson if we were involved in any way with pilotless drones.

As for the concern of air traffic at Payson Airport, that should be easily solved considering what air traffic there is. And what the drones are used for should not be any concern of the people in the Rim Country and Payson.

Mr. Clayton, Just how would that "involvement" be manifested? Like the University campus in Payson, are you only looking at the positives while ignoring or discounting the negatives?

If we want to boost the economy in Payson, the we shouldn't have any involvement with the commercial drones! There are so many concerns about these type of Drones, its difficult to begin. However, lets consider that they are very expensive, violate whatever "privacy" the citizens of Payson have left, and why would we need actual police if we have drones? The cost of one drone would pay the salary of three deputies for ten years. The citizens of Payson could actually make a "helicopter drone" for use in search and rescue. That would be a cool science project for the kids in town. Additionally, President O, wants all major police agencies to have them by 2014, that alone should cause suspicion, and will be funded by tax payers to "police" (spy) on tax payers.

Sorry folks, your to late. I know for a fact the Town already has Drones. Two are on the city council, three town department heads, and several in the PD and Fire departments.

If we said no to Ruger Firearms, why would we say yes to Drones? I'd rather have Ruger firearms.
