Flood Plain Problems

One town is working so they are not considered a "flood plain".
PUNXSUTAWNEY, JEFFERSON COUNTY - In recent years, due to Katrina, the Army Corp. of Engineers has been surveying levee systems. In 2012, they began surveying Punxsutawney and discovered if Punxsutawney did not make some changes the area near Mahonning Creek could be considered a flood plain.

Home owners worry the declaration could interfere with property value and business permits.

At this time the town is taking up the Army Corps suggestions. It will be up to FEMA whether or not the declaration is made.
