FEDERAL FLOOD INSURANCE NOW AVAILABLE IN THE CITY OF EASTBOROUGH, KS.

Washington, D.C. – The City of Eastborough has joined over 21,000 communities nationwide that are allowed to purchase federally backed flood insurance. This availability follows the community’s adoption and enforcement of ordinances to reduce flood losses and acceptance by the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).

The City of Eastborough is now a participant in the NFIP effective on February 1, 2017. Residents of the City of Eastborough will be able to purchase flood insurance up to the limits under the Regular Phase of the program. However, there is a 30-day waiting period before flood insurance coverage goes into effect. For single-family dwellings, the building coverage limit is $250,000 and the contents coverage limit is $100,000. Renters can also protect their belongings by purchasing contents coverage.

Lenders must require borrowers whose properties are located in a designated flood hazard area to purchase flood insurance as a condition of receiving a federally backed mortgage loan in accordance with the Federal Disaster Protection Act of 1973.

The NFIP is implemented through the Federal Emergence Management Agency. There are over 5.5 million flood insurance policies in more than 21,000 participating communities nationwide.

Minneha Township Bond Election

The following information was provided to Eastborough City Hall by Minneha Township regarding the Bond Election Ballot that was delivered by mail to most residents this week:

MINNEHA TOWNSHIP
50 Saint Cloud Place
Wichita, Kansas 67230

Dear Minneha Township Residents:

You either have received, or will soon receive, a mail ballot on a proposal of your Township Board to issue general obligation bonds to build and equip a building to serve the Township and its residents. Here's why we are proposing this investment.

Currently the Township leases space to house its equipment which includes large road maintenance machines, street sweepers, etc. There are a number of drawbacks to the leasing arrangement:

  1. The leased property is situated in Andover, a substantial distance from our service area causing loss of travel time and increasing fuel costs.
  2. The property is leased to us on a month-to-month basis.
  3. Because of the location of the property, we are restricted in our hours of operation which could interfere with emergency snow removal and other services in night time hours.

We have acquired a building site south of Central and Greenwich Road. Plans have been prepared to house our equipment in a building which would also include a public meeting room for Minneha residents.

This can be financed by issuance of $700,000.00 in general obligation bonds with no increase whatsoever in the mill levy due in part to the savings set forth below.

If the proposal is adopted in the mail ballot:

  1. The Township would own the facility and not be subject to rent increases and use restrictions imposed in the typical lease.
  2. The location is central in our service area, conserving labor time and fuel costs.

Questions may be directed to Don Gragg at 733-9099
