The City of Garland has been recognized as a Class 6 participant in the National Flood Insurance Program’s Community Rating System (CRS).
The program is a voluntary incentive that recognizes and encourages cities for floodplain management activities that exceed minimum requirements. Garland had maintained a Class 7 certification from its initial participation in the program, 1997, through 2022.
City officials worked with a CRS representative to improve its status to Class 6, effective Oct. 1. As a result, property owners in Garland who pay for flood insurance will save an average of $88 per year on their premiums.
Garland was recognized as a Class 6 participant by the Federal Emergency Management Association at the Oct. 10 City Council meeting. Only seven of 74 Texas cities in the program are Class 5 or above.
