RICHMOND -- The recently Town Council approved draft of the town's hazard mitigation plan could result in future grants for projects meant to increase public safety throughout the community.
With the council's unanimous approval at its Nov. 1 meeting, the plan will now be sent to FEMA. The federal agency will then review the plan and likely send back some recommendations for adjustments to the document, Richmond Emergency Management Director Joseph Arsenault said.
The plan has been in the works since the epic flooding that occurred earlier this year. Arsenault explained that he and the hazard mitigation committee met several times since then to list the hazards in town.
