The City participates in the National Flood Insurance Program that makes flood insurance available to property owners and tenants, and allows the City to qualify for funds related to natural disasters. Owners of buildings that exist in a special flood hazard area may be required by law to purchase federal flood insurance. In order to participate in this program, the City has adopted flood protection and prevention ordinances to minimize the risk of flood damage and loss to those wanting to develop in these areas. If you have questions about whether or how your property is affected by these laws, contact the City’s floodplain administrator.
