Residents and administrations alike are rather upset at these new adjustments, considering it will cost homeowners thousands of dollars in flood insurance.
Check out this week’s issue of The Courier for my coverage of the flood map controversy. The “flood map fallout” will be an eight-part series. At least eight parts, as I could probably write several volumes.
This week, the Middletown Democrats sounded off on the maps. Next week, look to hear from M’town Republicans.
Visit The Courier online later today to read more.
As I examine the issues, I will be concentrating more specifically on Middletown, Keansburg, Union Beach and Keyport.
