Comments, concerns, or questions regarding natural disasters and potential mitigation actions to be included into the plan update process should be submitted to Otter Tail County Emergency Management by phone or email. Public comments may also be submitted on the Otter Tail County Facebook page where this news release will be posted.
There will be additional opportunities for public feedback throughout the planning process. A draft of the plan will be posted on the County website for public review prior to submission of the plan to the State of Minnesota. Future news releases will be shared with the media to notify the public of these opportunities.
The Federal Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 (DMA 200) requires counties to update their plan every 5 years to maintain eligibility for FEMA’s Hazard Mitigation Assistance (HMA) grant programs.
