County Seeks Input on Hazardzs Mitigation Plan

A press release from the McHenry County Board:

Notice for Public Review and Comment of the 2016 McHenry County Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan

mch-co-emergency-mgmt-agency-logoMcHenry County, in partnership with participating jurisdictions, has completed a draft update of
the County’s hazard mitigation plan.

The purpose of the plan is to assess natural hazards that may impact our communities and identify a strategy (i.e., projects and actions) to reduce the impact of future hazard events.

Maintaining a compliant hazard mitigation plan ensures that McHenry County is eligible for all federally available mitigation-related Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) grant funding and disaster support opportunities (as set forth in the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000).

Public review and comment on the draft plan is welcomed and encouraged.

Comments will be accepted until 10/28/2016.

An electronic version can be downloaded at the web site below, or a draft copy is also available at the McHenry County Emergency Management Agency office at 2200 N. Seminary Avenue, Woodstock, IL 60098.

All comments should be directed to:

Tobert Ellsworth, McHenry County EMA, 815-338-6400, 815-334-4634 Fax,

Following the public review period, the draft will be submitted to the Illinois Emergency Management Agency and FEMA Region V for a compliance review. Following state and federal approval, the 2016 version of the plan will be adopted.
