Appeal period open for proposed DK Co. floodplain map
A proposed Flood Insurance Rate Map update for Dickinson County, as part of the Lower Smoky Hill floodplain mapping project, was released for public review in December 2018. Before the new map is finalized, property owners and lessees will have one more opportunity to provide engineering data through their community during the official 90-day appeal process.
The appeal period began Jan. 3 and will continue through April 2, 2020.
The new map will provide communities in this area with up-to-date flood risk information and tools that can be used to enhance local mitigation plans, and help local officials and residents make informed decisions about reducing flood risks and purchasing flood insurance.
