WAYNE – Wayne County will see their second Pictometry flight in three years following a discussion from the regularly scheduled Wayne County Board of Commissioners meeting Tuesday morning.

From the Wayne County Courthouse meeting room, Brian Kesting with the City of Wayne and Dawn Duffy, County Assessor updated the commissioners about a 2018 Pictometry flight.

Recently the Wayne City Council, approved the funding of up to $10,000 during their next budget year. The City of Wayne’s fiscal year beings in October.

The total cost for the second contracted flight is $64,877.50.

Kesting is hoping to get neighboring counties on board, which would reduce the cost. Also, the Pictometry Flight could be scheduled in March of 2018 or in the Fall of 2018. The flight will not take place with leaves on trees, according to Kesting.
