Program for Public Information Board
The City of Oakland Park participates in the Community Rating System (CRS), a national program developed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) that recognizes and encourages community floodplain management activities resulting in discounted flood insurance rates. The CRS uses a point system similar to fire insurance rating to determine the flood insurance premium reductions for residents.
The PPI board shall meet at least twice its first year and at least once annually after that:
- To review the assessment;
