LIVE OAK, FLA., JULY 26, 2022 – As a reminder to local residents, the Suwannee River Water Management District (District) and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will host a discussion tonight for the development of new flood risk maps for the Aucilla River Watershed, which includes parts of Jefferson and Madison counties.
The meeting will take place at 6 p.m. tonight, July 26, at the Greenville Town Hall, 154 SW Old Mission Ave, Greenville, FL 32331.
