Lake of the Ozarks Council of Local Governments will host the second public meeting for the Miller County Hazard Mitigation Plan Update at 6 p.m. Jan. 15 at the Eldon High School Library.
The meeting is slated to identify the risks and natural hazards that have had an impact on Miller County. Each identified natural hazard will be measured for probability and severity. Each jurisdiction will be asking them to complete a Community Assessment Survey to be incorporated in the planning process.
Natural disasters can lead to loss of life, property damages, loss of essential services, loss of critical facilities and economic disruption. Miller County recognizes the impact of these disasters on lake-area communities and is taking a proactive approach to updating the county’s Hazard Mitigation Plan.
“Through the planning process, we hope to make our communities more resilient,” a LOCLC spokesman said.
Hazard Mitigation is any action taken to reduce or eliminate the long-term risk to human life and property from natural hazards.
