New episode of "Pierce County Talks"

The Pierce County Council recently adopted new flood plain maps. If you live next to water, your home might require flood insurance. You may have received a property assessment recently from the County Assessor-Treasurer. We'll look at 2017 trends.

The council unanimously approved new FEMA flood insurance rate maps, which take effect March 7th. Pierce County last adopted flood maps 30 years ago in 1987. Better mapping technology has greatly improved the County's ability to define which areas are--and are not--prone to flooding.

Property Tax is one of the principal ways we pay for the services of local government. In the last year, on average county-wide there was a 5.6 percent tax increase. But some homeowners may actually see a decrease.
