The Kansas Department of Agriculture – Department of Water Resources is currently in the process of producing updated floodplain maps for all of Coffey County. This project has the potential to impact flood risks, tax rates, appraisal values, insurance rates and mortgage availability. There will be a Public Open House held on May 16, 2019 from 2 p.m. – 7 p.m. at the 4-H Building in Burlington. Taxpayers will have the opportunity to meet with floodplain experts to discuss the potential changes as well as the opportunity to talk with insurance agents about insurance options. All taxpayers are encouraged to attend. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Cara Mays, Coffey County GIS Coordinator at 620-364-8426 or [email protected].
