Discounted elevation certificates for Lewisburg homeowners

Lewisburg homeowners who live in the 100-year floodplain can get discounted elevation certificates that can reduce their flood insurance costs.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) elevation certificates cost $700 for these homeowners. This is a discounted group price that SEDA-Council of Governments (SEDA-COG) negotiated with Orangeville Surveying Consultants Inc. Without the discount, the rate can be as expensive as $2,000.

Residents must own and occupy their homes.

Geralee Zeigler, a program analyst in SEDA-COG’s Flood Resiliency program, explained how elevation certificates can reduce flood insurance premiums.

“Your insurance agent will use the elevation certificate to compare your building’s elevation to the Base Flood Elevation shown on the map being used for rating and determine the cost to cover your flood risk,” Zeigler said. “If the elevation certificate shows your property at a high elevation, it will lower your flood insurance cost.”

Zeigler also said the certificates also can help when homeowners want to sell their homes.

“Not only can elevation certificates greatly reduce flood insurance premiums, they also make a home more attractive for buyers since the buyer will know where the house stands in relation to the floodplain and knowing they’ll have less of a flood insurance cost,” Zeigler said.

Interested homeowners can contact Zeigler at gzeigler@seda-cog.org or 570-524-4491 ext. 7218.

SEDA-COG’s Flood Resiliency Program offers services related to flood resiliency and mitigation assistance both within and outside of its 11-county region. Its goal is to help break the damage cycle and stop its drain on people and communities. For more information, visit https://seda-cog.org/departments/flood-resiliency/.

Just a reminder to all Borough residents, visitors, business owners, and those who work in Lewisburg Borough.

Snow removal activities in the parking spaces and curb areas of Borough streets will continue the week of December 21, 2020.  The snow removal schedule will follow the posted “no Parking” street cleaning schedule for Borough streets.  Please remove all vehicles from the posted streets no later than 7:00 am each day and do not park again along these streets until at least noon.  Please do not assume that we have completed our work after the first pass of the equipment.  We will likely return to these streets just before noon to place anti-skid and ice melt materials.  In addition, the large amount of snow received has slowed our typical snow removal process.  What has usually taken us a few hours is now taking most of the day.  The longer the street is clear of vehicles on your posted “No Parking” day, the better the street will look by the end of the day.  We hope to have all Municipal Parking Lots and Borough street parking spaces cleared by the end of business on Thursday, December 24, 2020.

 

Please note that illegally parked vehicles on all streets will be towed to help facilitate snow removal activities.  Please obey the No Parking signs.  The BVRPD will assist us with vehicle ticketing and removal.  Vehicles must be moved for the equipment to properly and safely clear the parking lanes and roadway edges.

Shade Tree Commission Work Session

The Shade Tree Commission Work Session scheduled for Thursday, December 17th at 6 PM has been canceled.
