While flying a remote-controlled helicopter, plane or even a small drone might seem like harmless, all-American park fun, it’s illegal in all Santa Clarita parks, officials said. And flying your remote-controlled devices could earn you a citation. The idea behind the rule banning such devices is a safety consideration, said Rick Gould, director of parks, recreation and community service for Santa Clarita. “The code was adopted some time ago, but those types of devices, just like a golf ball or anything that’s thrown, could hit a park user,” Gould said.
Santa Clarita officials questioned the legality of their own settlement in a California Voting Rights Act lawsuit in a briefing filed this week. The filing is a result of Santa Clarita officials’ uncertainty over whether their agreed-upon settlement is legal and feasible, said Joe Montes, Santa Clarita city attorney. “If cumulative voting is not permitted and we’re not allowed to change the election date, then the parties will have to confer again as to how the matter will proceed,” Montes said. “It could mean that the litigation resumes, it could mean settlement talks could have to resume -- that’s just too far off to speculate at this point.”
