INDIANOLA, Iowa – The Iowa Department of Natural Resources invites citizens of Warren County to a meeting Wednesday night discussing changes in the county’s flood insurance rate maps.

The flood maps indicate areas in which homes damaged by flooding are insured, and with preliminary changes issued on June 22, the Iowa DNR wants to help citizens understand if their property will be impacted.

Citizens can ask general questions, take a look at the preliminary maps, and learn about how the appeal process they can go through for their community regarding any changes made.

The meeting will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Warren County Administration Building Board of Supervisors Meeting Room, on the second floor of 301 N. Buxton Street, in Indianola. If you can’t make the meeting, but would still like to speak with someone, you can contact the City of Des Moines Permit and Development Center’s Charlie Lepak at 515-283-4182.
