Resolution #_______ Adopting the Crawford County Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan
Whereas, USD #247 recognizes the threat that natural hazards pose to people and property within our community; and
Whereas, undertaking hazard mitigation actions will reduce the potential for harm to people and property from future hazard occurrences; and
Whereas, the U.S. Congress passed the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 ("Disaster Mitigation Act") emphasizing the need for pre-disaster mitigation of potential hazards; Whereas, the Disaster Mitigation Act made available hazard mitigation grants to state and local governments; and
Whereas, an adopted Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan is required as a condition of future funding for mitigation projects under multiple FEMA pre- and post-disaster mitigation grant programs; and
Whereas, USD #247 fully participated in the FEMA-prescribed mitigation planning process to prepare this Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan; and
Whereas, the Kansas Division of Emergency Management and the Federal Emergency Management Agency Region VII officials have reviewed the "Crawford County Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan," and approved it contingent upon this official adoption of the participating governing body; and
Whereas, USD #247 desires to comply with the requirements of the Disaster Mitigation Act and to augment its emergency planning efforts by formally adopting the Crawford County Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan; and
Whereas, adoption by the governing body for USD #247 demonstrates the jurisdictions' commitment to fulfilling the mitigation goals and objectives outlined in this Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan.
Whereas, adoption of this legitimizes the plan and authorizes responsible agencies to carry out their responsibilities under the plan;
Now, therefore, be it resolved, that USD #247 adopts the "Crawford County Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan" as an official plan; and
Be it further resolved, USD #247 will submit this Adoption Resolution to the Kansas Division of Emergency Management and Federal Emergency Management Agency Region VII officials to enable the plan's final approval.
