Westchester finalizing hazard plan that would save residents on flood insurance
WESTCHESTER – Westchester is in the process of finalizing a multi-hazard mitigation plan with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) that would allow residents to save 10 percent on flood insurance.
Walter Novak, a former village trustee who retired in May, has been working on the plan since 2011; a year after more than 3,500 homes in the village flooded during a storm that produced 7 inches of rain in 10 hours.
The village was hit hard again this year during April’s heavy storms. Village President Sam Pulia then met with FEMA officials in Springfield to seek funding for Westchester’s recurrent flooding issues.
