Flood Ordinance 2124 second Reading.  Mayor reads for the record:

Whereas, it is in the best interest of the Citizens of the Town to have an updated Ordinance for the management of the flood hazard areas in the Town in order for the citizens of the Town to be able to receive federal flood insurance through the National Flood Insurance Program and to receive discounts thereto as a result of the participation by the Town in the Community Rating System. Whereas Charleston County rate maps have been updated by FEMA into a County wide format which provides more accurate risk data then was previously available. Whereas as the environment changes rising flood waters due to sea level rise and outdated or incomplete drainage systems is a growing concern. This Ordinance takes strides to reduce flooding risk in adaptive and innovative ways to protect citizens. Town Council finds it in the public interest and a benefit to the general health, safety, and welfare of residents of this Town to adopt this Ordinance.

Off record to organize paperwork. Return to record.
