I call everyone’s attention to this article on page 16A of today’s Enterprise. As I recall, some riparians were recently up in arms about their flood-plain designations and were told by FEMA to wait upon the advent of this more accurate imaging, that would enable truer designations. This, I’m thinking, is the imaging that the County Board is refusing to pay the cost-share for (as reported in the aricle). Here is a link to the article; alas, it seems, you have to be a subscriber to access the full text.
Perhaps the LLLA should make a recommendation to the County Board. Or if the LLLA Board thinks it’s too political, or doesn’t agree, this is a topic that knowledgeable individuals in the Lake Association might want to weigh in on individually with letters to the Enterprise or with their Commissioners or at a County Board Meeting. Especially those who feel their flood-plain designations are inaccurate.
For my part, I think the County should jump on this and put up the matching funds.
