The City of Riley is participating in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).  The NFIP is administered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to provide home owners, renters and businesses in participating community’s access to affordable, federally backed Flood insurance.  

As part of our participation in the National Flood Insurance Program, the city has adopted a floodplain management ordinance to reduce future flood risks to new construction in the Special Flood Hazard areas (SFHAs).  The benefit of this program, for those in the Floodplain, may be access to federally backed flood insurance or reduced costs of their insurance.

The goal of this program is not only to provide access to flood insurance, but to educate the public about the dangers of flooding to reduce the risk of loss of life and damage to property.  To accomplish this goal, the city is making multiple forms of information available to the public.  There will be notices placed on the city’s webpage regarding flood safety throughout the year; FEMA publications on flood management are available at the library, Links for flood safety and management are here on the city’s webpage.
