Wicomico County purchases an inspection drone


Wicomico County has a drone. County Officials were testing out their new equipment late last week at the County Court House. According to County Executive Bob Culver, the drone was purchased to help with annual inspections of the Emergency Services communications towers.

Culver says the county has been outsourcing the inspections at great expense to Wicomico, and the drone will allow for inspections in-house on a schedule convenient for employees.

Culver noting the drone has multiple uses: on Friday, county employees used the drone to inspect the county court house for a reported leak.
