A planning team comprised of representatives from the Town of Taylor along with other jurisdictions within Navajo County recently updated and amended the existing Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan. The development of this plan is required by the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 (DMA2K).
The DMA2K requires all local, county, tribal and state governments to have a FEMA approved hazard mitigation plan in order to be eligible for federal hazard mitigation funds. The plan will focus on the most threatening hazards to citizens and property and will provide a strategy to reduce or eliminate the risk from those hazards.
The planning was adopted by the Taylor Town Council in June of 2012 and can be viewed and downloaded by clicking the link below.
