NT works with county's hazard mitigation plan

Tonawanda News — North Tonawanda will be working with Niagara County to update its hazard mitigation plan.

Niagara County and all incorporated jurisdictions within its boundaries are participating in a local hazard mitigation plan update. The plan is part of a federal requirement to identify hazards within the county and to explore means to reduce the risks and vulnerabilities to those hazards. 

As part of the planning process, Mayor Rob Ortt is asking residents to take an online survey. He said the brief survey will be used to paint a better picture of the resiliency of Niagara County, with a focus on natural disasters and flooding. Other opportunities to provide input and comments on the plan will become available at a later date. 

Those interested in participating in the planning process are asked to provide personal information in the last question of the survey. However, residents can remain anonymous by skipping the last question.
