September 17, 2019 - County Hazard Mitigation Plan (Draft) for public review/comment on-line or at the Open House on October 23rd.
Marinette County Emergency Management and response and planning personnel from the private and public sectors have been working together to update the County’s Hazard Mitigation Plan.
Hazard mitigation planning involves developing a set of actions designed to reduce or eliminate long-term risk to people and property from hazards and their effects. The rising costs associated with hazard recovery activities have led to a much greater emphasis being placed on dealing with hazards before they occur. With this plan, the County is able to identify actions needed in order to minimize risk and damage to people and property from natural hazards. Additionally, a current plan qualifies the County to apply for FEMA funding to undertake identified projects that will minimize future risks.
Public input is requested on the draft plan. A public informational meeting to present the draft plan, maps, and materials will be held October 23, 2019 from 4:00-6:00PM at the Marinette County Courthouse in the Jury Assembly Room (Annex basement) at 1926 Hall Avenue in Marinette.
