The Borough of Selinsgrove is working with SEDA-Council of Governments (SEDA-COG) to document the flood impact effects that many of you have experienced. Please join us on January 19, 2017, at 2:00 PM to learn about recent changes in legislation which will impact flood insurance premiums and how you can respond to this transformation.
As you are likely aware, Borough Council agreed to pilot the flood resiliency initiative. The planning process included a public meeting that was held in December. After the evening meeting in December, the participants encouraged us to repeat the meeting during the day to provide additional residents the opportunity to join us in discussing the community’s flood resiliency needs.
Consider getting involved now, so that you can be prepared for the next flood! There are many natural disasters; however, flooding is a predictable disaster, as we can be certain that it will flood again, and we know where the flooding will occur. SEDA-COG has received funding to undertake a flood resiliency initiative in Selinsgrove, and we want to hear from the citizens of the Borough.
In response to the community support, we will be holding another public meeting on Thursday, January 19, 2017, at 2:00 PM, at the Selinsgrove Borough Building. This meeting will be similar to the meeting held in December. We will be addressing flood insurance reform and mitigation ideas, as a way to develop a better understanding of the citizen needs.
We look forward to working with you and the Selinsgrove community to become better prepared through flood resiliency planning. We believe this effort will help you reduce property damage and losses, while helping to offset the increasing cost of flood insurance.
