New tool for county agencies

Columbiana County Commissioner Tim Weigle works at his desk on downloading a software program that helps operate the new search-and-rescue drone recently acquired for the sheriff’s office. The drone can only be operated by a licensed unmanned aerial vehicle pilot, and Weigle is the only one who is currently certified by virture of being a licensed pilot. County EMA Director Peggy Clark and Deputy EMA Director Brian Rutledge are going to go through the training to become licensed operators, along with several sheriff’s deputies.
