GURNEE,  IL – Residents and business owners in the Village of Gurnee can now enjoy a reduction in flood insurance premiums because of the Village’s active participation in the National Flood Insurance Program’s (NFIP) Community Rating System (CRS).  Beginning at the time when they either sign a new policy or renew their current policy, residents and businesses located in the Village’s Special Flood Hazard Areas can expect a 10% reduction on flood insurance premiums.  The Village estimates that this will result in $18,808 in savings for impacted residents and businesses.



The NFIP’s CRS program is strictly voluntary and offers communities the opportunity to receive reduced flood insurance rates in exchange for exceeding the NFIP's minimum standards.  This not only provides some relief to impacted property owners but reduces the threat of flood damage by requiring a uniform standard for floodplain management and educating the public on flood mitigation and insurance.



For more information on the NFIP's CRS program, visit the Federal Emergency Management Agency's website at http://www.fema.gov/business/nfip/crs.shtm.  For any questions regarding flooding or floodplains in the Village, contact the Village’s Engineering Division at (847) 599-7550.
