The FEMA Flood Map Service Center is a free tool that can be used to assess the flood risk for your property. If you would like assistance understanding and interpreting the Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) for your area, the Village of Montgomery provides a free Map Information Service. Please contact the Village at (630)896-8080 or visit Village Hall between 8:00am and 4:30pm on weekdays to inquire about potential flood risks to your property.
If you believe that your property has been erroneously mapped into a Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA), different avenues are available to petition for a change of the official FIRM. Consult the link regarding Letters of Map Amendment (LOMAs) and Letters of Map Revision (LOMRs) for more information.
