What involvement did the County have in this?
The County did not create the flood plain boundary. The County felt it should contact individuals who had structures in or near the flood plain boundaries, as any modification they make to structures within the flood plain and any new structures constructed in the flood plain must comply with the Flood Damage Prevention Ordinance. Further, the County felt that citizens who may have to purchase flood insurance should be notified of the fact that it may be able to be purchased at a reduced rate for a short period of time.
