Procedural update.

The legislation providing the Flood Relief funding requires that we prioritize situations that pose imminent health and safety risks to the oocupants,  This includes damage to structure, wells and septic systems.  These applicants will be served before stand-alone shorelineapplicants.  

Stand-alone shoreline damage applications will be reviewed and applicants contacted if additional information is needed at such time as we are able to serve them. Once you have applied no further action is needed until you are contacted by our staff.

The best way to communicate is an e-mail to [email protected]   We can respond much quicker to the emails then the time that is spent on one phone call.

Please help us help you more efficiently!
