Elevation Certificates

The Engineering Division maintains copies of Elevation Certificates received by the Village for public inspection and insurance rating for many structures located in or adjacent to the floodplain. These certificates are prepared by Licensed Professional Engineers, Architects or Land Surveyors registered in our State.


The Elevation Certificate documents the lowest floor elevation of any new building or substantially improved building in the Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA). If you obtain an Elevation Certificate for your property, please submit a copy to the Village for our records.
