Council Resolution of Support
The second key milestone for municipalities and other major stakeholders is to formally recognize the project and commit their support. FEMA suggests a council resolution. This is a critical step because jurisdictions will also be asked to formally support its adoption once the plan is updated.
In order to get this done for your jurisdiction, we’ve provided materials that will facilitate the process. The links to the right go to folders for your jurisdiction. The materials folder contains the following:
- Cover letter from our office.
- Flyer that gives a very basic overview of the update initiative.
- Sample language for a council resolution of support.
Please work with your Council Secretary and/or legal department to develop your resolution that you can put on your local letterhead. Once that is done, we need you to make sure that it goes before your Council to get signed.
We understand that the agreement / resolution can be a long process, so we suggest that you get your process started ASAP. Once yours is complete, please upload a copy of your completed resolution into the same folder linked above.
Contact Information Gathering
FEMA requires basic contact information for your key people (name, title, email). As part of the outreach phase, we need your help with our contact information data gathering.
The link to the right goes to a spreadsheet for your jurisdiction. Note, that you should be able to customize the roles for your jurisdiction easily, and that information is saved as you type it in there.
Thanks again for your help on this. We need your contact information by January 19th.
