Lee County to conduct flood study

By Ben Roberts - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Lee County will conduct an engineering study with the hope it will result in lower insurance costs for some homeowners.

New FEMA flood zone Maps put homes in flood zones that previously were not listed in them, including about 80 homes in the Groover Park neighborhood. County leaders hope a more detailed engineering study will allow those designations to be rescinded.

The county will spend $37,000 dollars for the study. The total cost is about $74,000 The cities of Leesburg and Smithville will pick up the rest of the cost.
