The Community Rating System is a voluntary program of the National Flood Insurance Program. Through the CRS, communities that are undertaking floodplain management activities that exceed the minimum floodplain management requirements of the NFIP earn reductions in the flood insurance premiums of their residents resulting in more affordable flood insurance.
Information on whether your property is in the 100-year floodplain can be obtained from the Building Department or by checking on FEMA's website.
If you have flooding or drainage problems on your property, contact the Building Superintendent for solutions. He can be reached at (708) 385-8642.
It is illegal to dump materials, yard waste or debris into a required waterway and violators may be fined. (515 ILCS 5/5-5). If you see someone dumping debris in our water courses or suspect any other illegal activity, please contact the Police Department at (708) 385-2534.
