The City has copies of FEMA Elevation Certificates on all buildings constructed or substantially improved in the flood plain since January 2014.

IMPORTANT FLOOD HAZARD INFORMATION:
1. Know your flood hazard
        Are you located in Zone A, AE or X?

        County Regional Library. Elevation Certificates are maintained in the City Clerk's office and available upon request.

2. Insure your property for your flood hazard
        You need flood insurance / The NFIP's Preferred Risk Policy, or PRP offers low-cost flood insurance to owners and tenants of eligible 
        residential and non-residential buildings located in moderate-to low-risk areas / Renters should buy flood insurance to cover their 
        contents / Take advantage of a low-cost Preferred Risk Policy.

        Keep debris and trash out of the steams and ditches
       Do not burn leaves in ditches

5. Build responsibly
        Get a permit from City Hall before you build
        Elevation Certificates are required when construction is within the floodplain area
        All projects should be at least 10 feet from the property line so you don't alter the drainage between homes

6. Protect natural floodplain functions
        Don't dump in the storm drains
        Report illegal dumping
        Report silt fence that are broken, debris will end up in the drainage canals

A community receives a CRS classification based upon the total credit for its activities. There are 10 CRS classes. Class 1 requires the most credit points and gives the greatest premium reduction or discount. A community that does not apply for the CRS, or does not obtain the minimum number of credit points, is a Class 10 community and receives no discount on premiums. The qualifying community total points, CRS classes, and flood insurance premium discounts are shown in Table 110-1.
