VIENNA – City and county officials, school leaders, emergency management agencies and interested residents are invited to attend a public meeting September 27 to discuss updates to the Maries County Hazard Mitigation Plan.

The meeting will be held at 10 a.m. in the conference room in the basement of the county courthouse located at 211 4th  St., Vienna, Mo 65582.

The county must have an approved hazard mitigation plan in order for Maries County schools, cities, agencies and others to access state hazard mitigation grant funds. The plan includes an assessment of natural hazards, showcases past accomplishments and sets goals and action items to reduce the impact of natural hazards in the future.

Meramec Regional Planning Commission (MRPC) is updating the plan in partnership with the Maries County Commission. Questions may be directed to MRPC Environmental Programs Specialist Ryan Dunwoody at rdunwoody@meramecregion.org or 573-265-2993.
