Question of the Moment

How do I obtain a flood elevation certificate for my property?

If you believe a flood elevation certificate has been prepared for your property and you need a copy, please submit a public records request. If there is not one on file and you are in need of one for your property, please contact a licensed land surveyor; the city does not provide this service.
