17-1 Kite flying restricted.
It shall be unlawful for any person to fly, above an altitude of ten feet above the ground, or near any electrical conductive public utility wires or facilities, any kite or balloon which has a body or any parts, tail, string or ribbon made of any metallic or electrical conductive material.
(Code 1959, ï¿½ï¿½ 4211, 4211.1; Ord. No. 501, ï¿½ 1)

What about balloon boys?
