Town Hall Meeting for Oceanport Residents With FEMA, National Flood Insurance Representatives

Community Meeting to keep residents informed in the aftermath of the super storm Sandy.

Oceanport Emergency Management and Boro elected officials have arranged a Town Hall meeting with FEMA and National Flood Insurance representatives to provide information to residents who have been affected by Sandy. The meeting will be held on Thursday, November 29th, 7PM at Maple Place School.

It is the intent of this meeting to provide as much information to residents so they may make informed decisions as they go about rebuilding their property to include mitigation activities that reduce or eliminate future flood damage.

The meeting will inform residents about some of the coverage’s within their flood insurance policies, such as Increased Cost of Compliance (ICC) and the FEMA grant programs that may be applied for to reduce or eliminate future flood damage. It is also hoped the Small Business Administration representatives will be present to discuss their loan programs.

Residents who have filed for assistance and or hold flood insurance policies, of which there are about 700 in force within the Boro, are urged to attend.
