Information About New Flood Maps and Flood Ordinance Changes


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.

UPDATE: Deadline Extended: RFQ: IP Telephony System


Brunswick County seeks an experienced firm to provide a solution for an on premise/virtual VOIP telephone and voicemail system to replace all Nortel telephone and voicemail systems that are currently being used.

The new system shall include Unified Communications and integrate with the county’s Microsoft 365, Exchange, and Active Directory systems.  All existing telephones should be replaced with equivalent IP phones.

The county requires that any system have the capability to service remote locations with the same features and functionality as the main office.

The county also requires a plan for redundancy, either due to emergency, power outage or capacity issues.

The system purchased is expected to have a supported service life of at least 8-10 years and to be compatible to the maximum extent practical with evolving technological innovations that can be reasonably foreseen.

The deadline for receipt of responses is Oct. 7, 2016 at 3 p.m.

The deadline has been extended to Tuesday, Oct. 11 at 3 p.m. due to potential weather conditions.
