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.
