FEMA offered Ocean County municipalities the option to adopt preliminary flood maps now or wait for the final draft of the FIRM Flood Maps in 2022.

.

George Kasimos contacted  Mayor Robert Sabosik for a comment on the preliminary map adoption which would have added over 658 homes into the flood zone.  Increasing the amount of homes required to purchase flood insurance by 25%.  Also increasing premiums for existing residents by enforcing higher elevations.

.

Mayor Sabosik stated  Point Pleasant will not be adopting the 2015 Preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Map for Ocean County. 

.

Point Pleasant will be waiting for the NYC Flood Map Appeal to be completed and a draft of  FIRM Maps to see how it will affect the residents of Toms River.  Appropriate action will be taken afterwards.  

.

Mayor Sabosik stated he expected flood premiums and BFE’s (Base Flood Elevations) to be lowered once  the protection of the Dune System is take into account with the final FIRM Maps in 2023.
