NOTICE FLOOD INSURANCE UPDATE :
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) conducted a series of virtual tour audits in early 2021 as part of the town’s administration of the Flood Damage Prevention Ordinance. As a result, some 200+ structures were flagged by FEMA to have possible and/or potential violations. Town staff are currently in the process of contacting property owners, providing on-site inspections, and assisting individuals to achieve full compliance as necessary. Every effort will be made to contact property owners in advance of any required site visits. Please contact the Building Inspection Dept. at 251-861-5525 x222 for additional information. Thank you in advance for your cooperation as we work to assist FEMA with this important process to maintain flood insurance availability for our island community. Additional information will be provided at the appropriate time.

*Notice : Mobile County Health Department - Eastern Equine Encephalitis
The Mobile County Health Department (MCHD) recently reported that Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) was detected in a sentinel chicken on Dauphin Island. These types of tests are checked weekly and MCHD is taking necessary actions to reduce and/or eliminate this health risk. Additional sprayings are underway via land-based vehicles and airplane
along with other treatments to reduce the mosquito population. Health officials have also reached out to island property owners to notify them that previously requested “no spray” areas will be temporarily suspended.
Mosquitoes are most active during the early morning and evening time periods. You can reduce your exposure as follows; (a) Use an EPA-registered repellent with DEET (b) Wear long pants and long-sleeved shirts when outdoors (c) Stay/sleep in places with air conditioning and/or window and door screens and (d) Empty/remove standing water within your property.
To report an issue with mosquitoes, contact Vector Services at (251) 690-8124. For additional information visit http://MCHD.org and click on Vector Control listed under “Services”.
