Price air space permit clears Santa Claus for Christmas Eve deliveries to local community
At the regular meeting of the Price City Council on Dec. 12, officials approved an air space permit for Santa Claus to fly around town making his holiday stops delivering toys and goodies to homes in the area.
The perm it allows the jolly fellow to bring his reindeer into town without having to license the animals in the locality and renders his sleigh impervious to all regulations as long as Santa Claus keeps the flight path above tree height and only lands on roofs.
Signed by Mayor Joe Piccolo, the Price air space permit will be good for the night of Dec. 24 and the early morning hours of Dec. 25.
