Destin city leaders discuss floating helipads
The issue of helicopters taking off and landing on Destin Harbor will come before city leaders tonight.
A helicopter tour company operated from a barge on the harbor earlier this year.
The county passed a rule saying aircraft can only take off and land on licensed airstrips.
But it's not clear if they have authority over Destin Harbor.
Council member Tuffy Dixon asked for research on who has jurisdiction.
He says if the city has authority, he'll propose an ordinance banning helicopter tour operations on the harbor.
