City Receives FEMA Award

The Federal Emergency Management Agency has recognized the City of Altoona for its flood mitigation efforts.
FEMA mitigation planner Molly Kaput says city officials have went above and beyond the minimum standards of the National Flood Insurance Program.
Kaput presented council with a plaque at Wednesday’s meeting. She says the distinction translates into an $82 savings for the average homeowner. Public Works Director Dave Dietrich says the city has been enforcing the proper building codes in the city’s flood plain. And he says his staff have conducted building reviews and made sure new development has been compliant.
