Flood Mitigation Town Hall- 9.23.21

Over the last five years the City of Reynoldsburg has experienced intense periods of rainfall that have led to flooding in your area. Due to the frequency and severity of these events and their impact on the residents in the City of Reynoldsburg we hosted a Town Hall on September 22nd at City Hall.

 At the Town Hall representatives from the Franklin County Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency, the Department of Natural Resources Division of Water and Flood Mitigation, City Engineer and other City officials were available to discuss what can be done in response to the issues impacting our community.
