Information About New Flood Maps and Flood Ordinance Changes

06.13.2018

Brunswick County is considering adopting new flood maps and amending the County’s Flood Damage Prevention Ordinance, to participate in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).

FEMA regularly updates Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) using studies to improve the maps and ensure their accuracy. The last maps FEMA approved for our area were adopted in 2006; since then, FEMA has worked to study and improve these maps. Now that FEMA has approved updated maps, Brunswick County can adopt them and continue to participate in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).

To view the current effective maps or the preliminary maps on the State’s website, visit the Flood Risk Information System (FRIS) – Flood Maps, which will automatically show the current effective maps. To view the preliminary maps, in the top right corner of the page, click on “Effective” and change to “Preliminary.” This will allow the viewer to see the maps being adopted on August 28, 2018.

Brunswick County will be scheduling a public hearing about these changes, and a public informational workshop will be held on July 10, 2018 at 6 p.m. in the County Commissioners Chambers, at 30 Government Center Drive in Bolivia, NC.

 CHANGE IN OFFICIAL PAYMENTS PROCESSING FEE

Effective May 25th, 2017, the fee for processing payments will have a cap of $1,000.00 at $3.95 for credit card and $1.95 for debit. This means that the fee for invoices billed from $0.01 to $1,000.00 will be a onetime charge of $3.95 for credit card and $1.95 for debit. In the event, you have an invoice billed for $1,500.00, the payment will be split into two (2) separate payment transactions meaning the fee will be $3.95 + $3.95 = $7.90 for credit card and $1.95 + $1.95 = $3.90 for debit. If you have an invoice billed for $3,999.99, the payment will be split into three (3) separate payment transactions meaning the fee will be $3.95 + $3.95+$3.95 = $11.85 for credit card and $1.95 + $1.95 + $1.95 = $5.85 for debit.
An invoice billed in the amount of $4,000.00 would require four (4) separate payment transactions.
