(A) The Town Council assures the Federal Insurance Administration (FIA) that upon approval of a flood control ordinance, it will enact as necessary and maintain in force in those areas having flood or flood-related erosion hazards adequate land use and control measures with effective enforcement provisions consistent with the criteria set forth in Parts 59, 60 and 65 of the National Flood Insurance Program Regulations (44 CFR); and
(B) Upon approval of a flood control ordinance, the Town Council will vest the Town Land Use Administrator with the responsibility, and the means to:
(1) Assist the FIA Administrator, as requested, in delineation of the limits of the area having special flood or flood-related erosion hazards.
(2) Provide such information as the FIA Administrator may request concerning present uses and occupancy of the floodplain or flood-related erosion areas.
(3) Cooperate with federal, state and local agencies and private firms which undertake to study, survey, map, and identify floodplain or flood- related erosion areas, and cooperate with neighboring communities with respect to management of adjoining floodplain and/or flood- related erosion areas in order to prevent aggravation of existing hazards.
(4) Upon occurrence, notify the FIA Administrator in writing whenever the boundaries of the community have been modified by annexation or the community has otherwise assumed or no longer has authority to adopt and enforce floodplain management regulations for a particular area. In order that all Flood Hazard Boundary maps (FHBMs) and Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) accurately represent the community’s boundaries, include within such notification a copy of a map of the community suitable for reproduction, clearly delineating the new corporate limits or new area for which the community has assumed or relinquished floodplain management regulatory authority.
(C) Upon approval of a flood control ordinance, the Town Council will appoint the Town Land Use Administrator to maintain for public inspection and to furnish upon request, for the determination of applicable flood insurance risk premium rates within all areas having special flood hazards identified on a FHBM or FIRMs, any certificates of floodproofing, and information on the elevation (in relation to mean sea level) of the level of the lowest floor (including basement) of all new or substantially improved structures, and include whether or not such structures contain a basement, and if the structure has been floodproofed.
(D) The Town Council agrees to exercise its discretion to take such other official action as may be reasonably necessary to carry out the objective of the program.
