County to update plan

Seneca County is to update its existing Hazard Mitigation Plan. The plan provides Seneca County communities with goals, actions and resources to reduce the risks from future natural disasters.

By engaging in the planning, communities will have benefits such as reduced loss of life and property, reduced short- and long-term recovery time, improved cooperation and communication and increased opportunities for funding in reconstruction.

To comment on the plan, visit and select Seneca County Hazard Mitigation by Dec. 27.
