The Department of Building, Planning and Code Enforcement is the community's resource for all types of land development, construction and associated topics. The Building Division provides plan review and building inspection for both new structures and renovation of commercial and residential buildings. The Planning Division provides information and applications for zoning, historic preservation, subdivision, annexation and many other land-use issues. Code Enforcement handles abandon/junk vehicles and weeds as well as the City's sidewalk program.
Note to Citizens:
If the new floodplain map places your property outside the floodplain, you may be able to cancel your flood insurance. To cancel your flood insurance, you should contact your insurance agent. Your insurance agent will probably need two documents to complete this process.
A copy of the new floodplain map showing that your property is now outside the floodplain.
If there is a lien on the property, your insurance agent will need a letter from your lender releasing you from the obligation to hold flood insurance. Your lender will need to see the updated floodplain map, which shows that your property is now outside the floodplain.
Property owners may be eligible for a refund of a portion of their flood insurance premiums. Ask your insurance agent if you qualify for any premium refund.
