BY DORIS TRUHLARGOVERNMENTAL REPORTER
A Centennial woman told the City Council Monday night that a drone in her neighborhood has caused her to feel “violated” and that the drone has invaded her privacy, resulting in a “horrendous experience.” She urged the council to do something about the drone.
Jane Worthing, of 6675 S. Williams Street, in District 1 of Centennial, described her neighborhood as being “nice” and “quiet.” She said the drone, “flew in a circle” over her and followed her to a park.
Additionally, Worthing said the drone had come to an area outside her bathroom when she was getting ready to go to bed. She asked the council to help her find a solution to the situation. Worthing said she has talked with neighbors about the situation, and that she represented not only herself, but ten other neighbors in the immediate area near her home.
Worthing said that the person flies the drone above 400 feet, which she said violates Federal Aviation Authority rules. “It’s disturbing,” she told the council. She added that she does not feel “comfortable” walking her dog in her own neighborhood.
City Attorney Robert Widner said the council could have a study session to discuss Worthing’s concerns, and determine whether there is something that can be done about it.
Worthing said the individual flying the drone is a man in the neighborhood who does not have a “regular job” and who lives with some of his relatives.
It appeared likely the council will have a study session in regard to the issue.
