DUBUQUE (TH MEDIA) -

An eastern Iowa city wants a drone. According to our coverage partners at TH Media, the Dubuque City Council unanimously approved a request from the Cable TV Commission. They plan to buy a drone and use it to take pictures and video of city projects.

Other departments could use the drone as needed -- for example, responding to tricky fires, train derailments even looking at flood damage.

The group still needs permission from the FAA.
