City Planning

    The city’s Public Works department has a full team of skilled employees who are dedicated to prepare for potential flooding. This includes ensuring all flood risk reduction measures are in proper working order (temporary walls, pumps, et al.) and continually evaluating new flood mitigation measures and systems.

    The Public Works department works closely with the city’s Floodplain Managers to help property owner’s with their own flood risk reduction measures.
