LAYTON -- City officials will fund a new updated storm water master plan and analysis in order to ensure the accuracy of flood plain maps generated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in the future.

The city council voted unanimously at a recent meeting to fund professional engineering services for the storm water master plan, in order to provide that information for FEMA. Flood plain maps determine what residents are required to have flood insurance.

City officials finalized a contract with Bowen, Collins and Associates to provide the service for $81,523 for the year. The services will include hydrology and flood plain mapping, according to Terry Coburn, director of public works.
