Indy Public Works reps will be at town meeting Tuesday 8/12

Good evening everyone-

This is a friendly reminder to be sure to join us at the next town council meeting this Tuesday at 7:30 PM.

Representatives from the Indianapolis Department of Public works will be joining us to discuss the city’s position on the levee project.

We need to let the City of Indianapolis know that we need and deserve their help. Please come and show your support for your town and join us this Tuesday night at 7:30 PM (8/12/2014). Also bring your friends and some good questions for the city. This is our chance to hear what the city of Indianapolis is planning to do.

Here is a link to the city’s webpage for the Indianapolis North Side Flood Reduction Project:

Also, on a different note, if you have flood insurance through FEMA, you should be looking for a letter from FEMA seeking verification of your primary residence. It is critical that you respond to this letter, otherwise you will no longer be eligible for Pre-FIRM subsidized rates and your flood insurance rates will rise by 25% per year until your premiums are at the “full risk rate.”

See you Tuesday!

Sincerely,

Brad Barcom
Rocky Ripple Town Board President
