The City’s Department of Public Works provides one-on-one flood protection consultations to home- and business-owners within our City limits. These consultations include: a review of existing documentation (Elevation Certificates, V-Zone certificates, photos, development plans, etc.), an evaluation of the structural and/or mechanical vulnerabilities of the structure to flood damage from rising waters, the recommendation of best management practices to employ before a flood (that may potential lower your flood insurance premiums), and a pre-consultation site visit if requested. Michael Burgess, our Public Works Director & Emergency Manager is a Certified Floodplain Manager (CFM®) with 17 years’ experience as well as a Professional Hydrologist and Certified Stormwater Manager. Give him a call at 850-837-4242 or email him at mburgess@cityofdestin.com if you would to take advantage of this flood protection assistance program.
