Assemblyman Michael P. Kearns, 142nd District, Erie County Legislator Lynne Dixon and Lackawanna officials are presenting an informational meeting on Thursday, July 25 at the Lackawanna Library, 560 Ridge Road, from 5 to 7 p.m. to discuss the cost of flood insurance for Lackawanna residents. 

Residents are encouraged to attend and complete a flood insurance survey. The survey will help local officials gather information on the cost of flood insurance and frequency of flood claims in Lackawanna.  

“For years, Lackawanna residents, especially those in the Second Ward, have complained about the costly and seemingly unnecessary flood insurance they are forced to pay. For years they have been told that efforts would be taken to help do away with that requirement. It is about time we do something. The groundwork has already been laid and precedent has already been set. We are taking this issue on and are optimistic we can have the same success they had in parts of South Buffalo," Legislator Dixon said. 

New York State Assemblyman Michael P. Kearns stated, “The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) has created disinvestment in our local communities. All home and business owners have an obligation to obtain mandatory flood insurance, which brings high flood insurance costs even though there is low risk of flooding. This survey will assist in the process of gathering vital information to remove the onerous tax on the citizens of Lackawanna.”

Legislator Lynne Dixon has made the Flood Insurance Survey available for Lackawanna residents on her website - CLICK HERE to download a copy of the survey.
