Brown said the new map from FEMA has a number of changes.  “We just want the people who have property in a flood zone to be aware of what some of the changes are, and we don’t really know what all the changes are,” said Brown, “We do have an engineering company studying the flood maps, and we will talk with our prosecuting attorney about the flood maps.  We’ve already been notified that there are some small errors in the flood maps.”

The Commission is hosting a public hearing regarding the new maps Thursday morning at 9:30 in the Saline County Courthouse.
