7:00:   Public hearing on the Final Draft of the Delhi Local Flood Analysis document

There was much discussion regarding the LFA, many points were clarified:

            The LFA is a working document, and can be modified in time

            Adopting the LFA does not commit the Village or Town to any flood mitigation projects

            Adoption the LFA will open up new funding opportunities for any proposed projects

            The Village and Town Boards will be the ones to approve any proposed projects, not the Flood Commission

            Adopting the LFA could have many positive impacts on the community, including changing the flood zones, which could in turn, lower flood insurance for many properties.

Motion was made by Trustee Samudrala to declare a negative declaration and authorize the Mayor to sign the SEQR document. Motion was seconded by Trustee Maney and passed unanimously.
