Flood Zones Updated

Laurens County Council this week unanimously approved an ordinance to update the flood zones of Laurens County. Laurens County Code Enforcement Director Chuck Bobo said this also brings the county flood ordinance in compliance with state changes. He said the new 2019 FEMA flood maps must be adopted by county council to be in effect on June 20th. Bobo said the changes will help owners of some of Lake Greenwood waterfront lots, making a lot of people happy to get out of the flood zone.
