Village residents are eligible for free cleaning supplies and any other items needing to be replaced because of the flood. These items are vailable at the Fremont City Auditorium. Hours are 9am – 9pm daily.
The Village trustees have been attending meetings and gathering information for the residents and property owners of the Village. A meeting will be announced as soon as it is scheduled.
The Village has arranged an inspection team to go door to door to each house in the Village. They will inspect your electrical panel, gas appliances and heating/AC. If no one is home they will leave a note showing how to contact them for your inspection. These inspections are being done at no charge for the home owners. The inspectors will be coming door to door and must be allowed to inspect your property to ensure compliance with federal, state and local regulations and ensures the Village is eligible for Federal assistance. If your home receives any restricted tag, additional steps will need to be completed before another inspection can be scheduled. Each home must also have its foundation inspected. Currently the Village is trying to find a company that is certified to do these inspections. This will also be done at no charge to the property owner. Foundations will also need to be inspected and the Village is trying to arrange an inspector for that as well.
Any pumping of water from homes must be done to the outside toward the road. Do not pump the water into any drains inside your house. This pumps the water into the sewer system and overworks the system possibly causing the sewer to back up into your home or your neighbor’s home. Water is currently being pumped out north of Ridgleand to help with the flooding still occurring in that area.
The Village is securing a company that will come door to door and pick up items that need to be discarded. You can place them by your curb and they will stop by and take them away for you.
