The Building Department, under the direction of Floodplain Manager and Building Official James McGuinness and Department Supervisor Marisol Vargas, was successful in demonstrating excellence in Floodplain Management as determined by a recent FEMA/CRS audit.
The Town has achieved an upgrade from Class 7 to a Class 6 CRS rating. This will result in a savings of more than 20% in flood insurance premiums for the entire Town. Total Town-wide discounts on insurance premiums will now exceed $469,000.00, which is an increase in savings of more than $126,000 over prior year audits.
