EMA Logo

Would you like to learn more about what Marshall County is doing to minimize the impacts of severe weather, floods, and other hazards before they occur?  A draft of the County’s updated Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan is being made available for public review and comment. The plan assesses risks posed by natural and human caused hazards, identifies ways to reduce those risks, and allows the County to be eligible for mitigation funding from FEMA.  A Hazard Mitigation Planning Committee (HMPC) consisting of representatives from various county departments, the municipalities including Albion, Clemons, Ferguson, Gilman, Haverhill, Laurel, Le Grand, Liscomb, Marshalltown, Melbourne, Rhodes, St. Anthony, State Center, East Marshall Community School District, GMG Marshall Community School District, Marshalltown Community School District and West Marshall Community School District developed the plan update over the past nine months with assistance from a consultant and input from stakeholders and the public. The plan identifies hazard mitigation goals and a variety of mitigation projects with the intent of reducing losses from hazard events before they occur again.  The planning committee is now soliciting public comment on the plan before it is finalized and submitted for FEMA review and approval.  

The comment period will be October 29th – November 15th, 2021. The plan can be accessed at the website below:
