Storm Shelter Program
There will be two types of storm shelters available to citizens: below-ground shelters (approx. 6×8) and above-ground shelters (approx. 4×6). However, if an applicant is requesting an above-ground storm shelter, they must provide documentation of physical limitations that warrant an above-ground shelter (i.e. Doctor’s note identifying the restriction or limitation such as the use of a walker, or wheelchair). Citizens who are eligible for above-ground shelters must have adequate interior space and sufficient concrete slab on which the shelter will be installed.
We are anticipating some minor changes to the program and applications will be made available when program details have been finalized.
Applications can be submitted via mail, email, or fax.
