2020 Morton County Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan

The draft of the 2020 Morton County Multi-Jurisdictional Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan is now available for review.  The draft is available on the Morton County, City of Glen Ullin, Hebron, Mandan, and New Salem websites.  A printed copy is also available at the Morton County Office of Emergency Management in the Morton County Courthouse in Mandan.

A public hearing to accept comments on the draft plan will be held from 6:00 to 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, September 3, 2020, at the Mandan Rural Fire Station at 3014 34th St. NW in Mandan.  The public hearing will review the draft plan, results from the mitigation survey, and public comments received.  The public hearing will officially close at 6:30 p.m., and will be followed by a Steering Committee meeting immediately thereafter.


The Steering Committee will review comments received, approve participation by local jurisdictions, and approve the draft plan to be submitted to the N.D. Dept. of Emergency Services (NDDES) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for approval.  Once the plan receives approval pending-adoption, each incorporated jurisdiction included in the plan must pass an adoption resolution before an official approval letter from FEMA is issued.
