Several departments are currently working to establish a county grant fund that would allow for the remaining eligible properties to perform their own mitigation with financial assistance from the County. There are several steps required to establish the grant fund including the adoption of a new County ordinance. The ordinance is currently in development.
It is staff’s intention that the proposed County ordinance and proposed guidelines for the Selma Estates Flood Mitigation Project, requested earlier this year, will be brought to the Board this summer (June or July). If both are adopted by the Board, staff will begin implementing the proposed Selma Estates Flood Mitigation Project immediately..
