Despite objections from a couple of residents, Washington Planning and Zoning Commission members voted unanimously Monday night to recommend the city council adopt new floodplain maps prepared by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

The city must officially adopt the maps by Oct. 18. If it fails to approve the new maps, citizens will not be able to purchase flood insurance through FEMA’s national insurance program and if there is a flood, the city may not be eligible for disaster aid, board members were told.
