The City of Kalona will participate in a federal program that lowers the cost of mandatory flood insurance. FEMA’s Community Rating Program is free to cities and reduces the cost of flood insurance purchased by residents by 10% initially, up to 45%. Mayor Ken Herington says the discounts are earned if they do mitigation projects that help reduce the impact of flooding events.
