Despite a report to the contrary in the Federal Register, unincorporated Bryan County is compliant with requirements of the National Flood Insurance Program, according to a press release issued Monday by Bryan’s planning and zoning department.
The release states the county received confirmation it was compliant on Feb. 24 from the DNR’s Thomas Tkacs, but a report in volume 79, issue 65 of the Federal Register listed the unincorporated part of Bryan County as scheduled for suspension from the NFIP.
The reason?
The county was on a list of communities scheduled for suspension because it had not yet adopted new flood maps, but submitted “required documentation prior to the suspension date and has subsequently been removed from the non-compliant list,” the release said.
It also apparently crossed in the mail.
The county said the Federal Register article and “the approval sent by the state to the federal office passed in the mail.”
