FREEPORT, ILLINOIS — The City of Freeport is applying for the Pre-Disaster Mitigation Grant Program and is holding a town hall meeting at St Paul’s Missionary Baptist Church on Thursday, November 14, 2019 at 6:00 pm.
The town hall meeting will offer a presentation on the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program to help residents receive funds from the City to relocate to a non-hazard-prone home.
The city states that participation is completely voluntary and that neither the State nor the City of Freeport will use its eminent domain authority to acquire property. The meeting will cover if residents choose not to participate in the grant program or if negotiations fail for the purchase of your property. There will also be a presentation by ComEd.
The town hall meeting will include time for community comments limited to 3 minutes each.
St Paul’s Missionary Baptist Church is located at 607 E. Stephenson in Freeport.
