Notice for those in the confluence area, floodplain, and floodway: the Town has received word from FEMA that the Elevation Certificates (EC) have been changed to a new form with an expiration date of November 30, 2022. Please make sure you have the correct version when doing work such as elevating or making any other changes in the Special Flood Hazard  Area.
