As the Flood Plain Manager, as well as the Building Commissioner, from the time of the storm until today and going into the future, I was tasked with making a determination of Substantial Damage on all of our properties,  and dealing with the results of those determinations with the property owners.  At the same time dealing with FEMA and their programs to help our residents.

To date I am tasked with getting all of our residents back home into, their repaired home, elevated home, or in many cases their new home.  To date we have issued over 1000 permits for new or elevated homes since the storm, and have another 300 pending.  These numbers don’t include the necessary permits for the flood repair of all the other structures , that weren’t elevated or demolished.


I believe I have a very interesting and real story to tell people, on what we accomplished and how we accomplished it, as well as the stress of this and all the bumps in the road to get to the point that we are at today.
