Trumbull County Commissioners vote on using drones to cite zoning violations

Posted: Updated:
WARREN, Ohio -

Trumbull County Commissioners have decided not to use drones to check on zoning violations in the county. 

The Trumbull County Commissioners cited privacy issues when deciding not to use the drones. 

The county was presented with the plan to use the devices to check on violators. 

The drone would be used to see who may be working on properties without a permit. 

The idea was struck down in a vote two to one. 

Commissioner Frank Fuda was the only one who voted in favor of the drones.
