The Sycamore Building & Engineering Department provides information
on the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) and
Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) related inquiries and
maintains Flood Insurance Rate Maps, as well as the Flood Insurance
Study. Effective May 12,
2012, the City of Sycamore was admitted into FEMA’s Community Rating
System (CRS) as a Level 7 participant.
This means that any Sycamore resident that is required to
hold a flood insurance policy is eligible to receive a 15% discount
on their insurance premium at the time of renewal.
Additionally, standard rated flood insurance policies in
Flood Zones B, C, X, D, R, AR and A99 are eligible for a 5%
discount. If you have
questions or require additional information regarding the CRS
program, please contact your insurance agent.
General questions regarding the program and floodplain
questions may be directed to the Sycamore Building & Engineering
Department at (815) 895-4434.
