The Hazard Mitigation Plan for the county will see an update. Navasota Fire chief Jason Katkoski, at Monday night’s Navasota city council meeting, says this is something that has to be done, and things are a bit different in updating it this time.
“Every five year, the Hazard Mitigation Plan has to be updated and sent back to FEMA. In the past, all the counties in the region have been taken care of but going forward, it will be left to individual counties to do,” Katkoski said.
As for the reason it has to be updated? Katkoski explains.
“The importance of this is this is where our grants come from,” Katkoski said. “We have to have an approved Hazard Mitigation Plan to be eligible for a lot of the grants we receive. ”
The plan will cost the city no money. The council unanimously approved the plan.
