4/19/22 @ 3:45 p.m. - It's Flood Awareness Month! As a voluntary participant in the National Flood Insurance Program that provides residents with flood insurance at premium rates, we will be publishing periodic flood awareness messages throughout the month as it helps us maintain our flood management ratings.
Tip #5: Build Responsibly and Avoid Building in Floodplains
Before you build, find out what the regulations are and what type of permits are required. Be aware of substantial improvement rules which are there to correct structures built before current regulations and flood mapping.
For more information, visit your community's flood risk website. For example, if you live within a town or city, contact those entities directly. If you live in the County limits, visit the County's floodplain website here.
