The Floodplain Management Office is located within the Fayette County Building and Zoning Departments. The Floodplain Manager is Jay Myers.

The Floodplain Resolution was passed in May of 1995 to participate in the floodplain management. The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) is a Federal program enabling property owners in "participating communities" to purchase insurance protection against losses from flooding. The insurance is designed to provide an insurance alternative to disaster assistance to meet the escalating costs of repairing damage to building and their contents caused by flood.

For more information about the NFIP and flood insurance, call 800-427-4661 or go to . . .

If new construction or additions are occuring in the community that require zoning permits, the zoning inspector will make an effort to notify the property owners that they are in violation of the zoning and building codes. If the violation continues, the zoning inspector will issue a zoning violation which will describe the violation and provide the property owners with course of action and spell out their rights.
