Flood Insurance Rate Map Changes Ready For Public Review

A proposed Flood Insurance Rate Map (or FIRM) update for Livingston County has been released for public review. Before the new map is finalized, property owners and lessees will have the opportunity to review the updated flood risk data shown on the map and provide additional technical or scientific data during the official 90-day appeal process.

The community is participating in the map change as part of the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) effort to update maps nationwide to reflect communities’ current flood risk so that actions can be taken to mitigate and become more resilient against future flood risk. Community officials across Livingston County have been working closely with the Missouri State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) to implement this update.

The proposed Flood Insurance Rate Map is available at the Livingston County Courthouse.  Contact Mark Shockey in the Assessor’s office. The maps can be viewed online at:
