Laurel, New Jersey 08054 <br /> Phone: (856) 787-0412 or (800) 444-4554 FAX 1-800-777-3929 <br /> Please direct correspondence to: Marlene Jacobs, ISO Specialist, 1177 E Virginia St. Stayton, OR 97383 <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />November 6, 2019 <br /> <br />Ms. Karen Hodges <br />Floodplain Manager <br />411 Ruby Street <br />Ellensburg, Washington 98926 <br /> <br />Dear Ms. Hodges: <br /> <br />Enclosed are the preliminary results regarding credits for the Community Rating System <br />(CRS) 2019 cycle verification visit with Kittitas County, Washington. <br /> <br />A total of 2075 credit points are verified which results in a recommendation that the <br />community remain a CRS Class 6. <br /> <br />Attached are the draft verification report and credit calculation worksheet (AW-720). <br />This report is subject to further review by Insurance Services Office, Inc. (ISO) and <br />acceptance by DHS/FEMA. I anticipate FEMA will accept the verification report as <br />written and the community will receive confirmation of the assigned flood insurance <br />premium discount prior to the effective date of May 1, 2020. <br /> <br />After the rate takes effect or within one year of the cycle visit date, the community will be <br />required to submit an annual recertification. Consistent implementation of the activities <br />credited will ensure a successful recertification process. Please continue to document <br />the activities credited on an annual basis until the next cycle verification visit. <br /> <br />The next cycle verification visit is scheduled to occur approximately five years from the <br />date of the last visit. Prior to the beginning of 2024, I will once again contact you to <br />coordinate the verification process. <br /> <br />Thank you for your assistance and cooperation during our visit. It was a pleasure <br />working with you and learning about your community. <br /> <br />Sincerely, <br /> <br />Marlene Jacobs <br /> <br />Marlene Jacobs, CFM <br />ISO/CRS Senior Floodplain Specialist <br /> <br />Cc: Mr. Cory Wright, Chairman Board of Kittitas County <br /> Mr. Mark Cook, Director of Public Works <br />Ms. Arden Thomas, Water Resources Program Manager <br /> Ms. Roxanne Reale-Pilkenton, DHS/FEMA Region X <br /> Mr. David Radabaugh, Washington State NFIP Coordinator
