CRS Program

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Community Rating System (CRS) program has raised the Village’s Community Rating System from a Class 7 to a Class 6%. 

The successful annual CRS review of the Village’s flood management activities qualifies affected residents for a 20% reduction in flood insurance rates on properties within the Special Flood Hazard Area. Properties outside that area receive a 10% reduction in rates. This recertification indicates that our flood mitigation efforts and community outreach programs continue to be successful.
