INDIANAPOLIS (February 10, 2015) – The Department of Local Government Finance (DLGF) certified Rush County’s 2015 budget order and tax rates on January 2, 2015, paving the way for on-time property tax bills. The budget certification puts the county in a position to have taxes due on May 11, 2015. Rush County was the 12th county in the State to receive its 2015 budget order and tax rates.
Preliminary flood hazard maps for Rush County have been released by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), according to the DNR and county officials. The preliminary maps may be viewed at http://www.in.gov/dnr/water/6672.htm (you may experience a long download time).
When final, the maps will show flood risk throughout the county and determine whether property owners, with a federal or federally insured loan, are required to carry flood insurance.
