Get ready to save some money on your flood insurance, thanks to the efforts at city hall.
The City of South Miami just announced it has improved its Community Rating System (CRS) score. The CRS score is determined by how much a community does to protect itself from flooding. Because of the work by the city, SoMi's rating just improved from seven to six (the lower the number, the better it is).
We know...you're saying "Stop with the government jargon, and tell me what this means to me!"
So here is the answer. If you live in what your flood insurance company calls the "special flood hazard area," your insurance costs will now drop by 15%! If you live anywhere else in the city, your costs will drop by 10%!
Make sure you contact your flood insurance company and let them know about the city's upgraded score.
