Citrus County Department of Public Works has named Mark A. Young as the new Director of Engineering. Young officially started his new position on Monday, October 28, 2019.
With more than 20 years of experience in engineering, Young was a Professor at the University of Miami in the Department of Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering for a period of 13 years during his career.
No injuries were reported Friday when a plane — whose landing gear was stuck — got things unstuck when the pilot was able to deploy gear manually.
The Citrus County Sheriiff’s Office (CCSO) said that the CCSO Aviation Unit, alongside Citrus County Fire Rescue and Nature Coast EMS, arrived on scene as the small plane circled the Inverness Airport with failing landing gear.
Fire, EMS and Law Enforcement all came together to prepare for the worst, but hope for the best, the CCSO said in a statement.
