The elevations had earlier been set nt a minimum of 17-feet and a maximum of 18-feet by the federal government. With adoption of the FIA elevations Richwood will now "be back Into the business of being able to grow," as Mayor Benny Howard had earlier predicted. Howard said that he had talked with Richard Krim, assistant administrator of the FIA, yesterday prior to the council meeting. Krim said the city could go ahead with adoption, Howard said. Howard said that permission to start building, similar to a variance, would now be given for home builders in the area Krim told Howard that insurance companies and loaning Institutions should be given his name should any questions arise about the new elevations. Howard said. The new flood elevations came about following an intensive study of the Richwood area called an A- 19 review, The A-19 review covered all city data since 1945, including subsidence and the 100-year floodplain. according to Howard. "The entire area adjacent to us will be benefiting from this study," Howard continued Following the motion to adopt the map by Councilman Dan Gamer, and a second to the motion by- Mayor Pro-tem Jeanne Green, council approved the map unanimously. Howard said that it would be 60 days before the new floodplain maps were issued. Howard said he would be finalizing work on Richwood's flood elevations on Dec. 10 when he is in Washington, D.C., on Houston-Galveston Area Council business.
