Mapleton City Emergency Preparedness
Each year we are faced with the potential for flooding caused by the spring thaw. Many parts of the country received large accumulations of snow this winter. As the weather warms, the combination of melting snow and anticipated springtime rainfall can cause potential flooding in towns and communities throughout the nation.
As part of my Mayor’s Message last month, I addressed ideas on how each of you can prepare for potential flooding and how we as a City are closely monitoring the situation and making appropriate plans for any possible peak conditions. Within the last few months I have instructed City staff to monitor potential flooding conditions. So far we are in good shape but we are ready just in case and we encourage you as a citizen to do the same.
