Sneak a Peek at the Flood Map Presentation Being Given to Trinity River Property Owners
The doc's full of interesting tidbits -- like, say, the levee reconstruction and remapping time line on Page 18, and the note that in June of this year FEMA revised its insurance rules to keep prices down: "The policy revision allows property owners to maintain lower flood insurance rates for the first two years after new maps become effective." But what you see above is the thing in which Schutze has become particularly interested -- he was wondering yesterday where that $150 mil's coming from, exactly. And does the city, which has grown frustrated with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, really think that sinking cut-off walls will cost that little? "Laughable" is the word Jim kept using. Only, he wasn't laughing.
