MORRIS COUNTY LAUNCHES WEBSITE FOR FEMA FLOOD INSURANCE RATES MAPS
Morris County has launched a website to inform and assist municipal officials and property owners as they begin the process of reviewing the flood hazard maps provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
This website can be found at: http://morriscountynj.gov/planning/firms
The proposed new flood maps will be the standard of flood risk determination for many years (previous FIRMs were in effect from 24-45 years). As such, Morris County encourages flood-affected municipalities and property owners to attend the public meetings to learn about the preliminary FIRMs, map approval schedules, and how to request changes if you believe the map to be inaccurate.
