Electric Coop Local Hazard Mitigation Plans

In 2010, the Association of Missouri Electric Cooperatives elected to create a statewide plan for all rural electric cooperatives (RECs). As a statewide plan, certain elements have been standardized, but each individual REC worked with the local regional planning commission to create their own mitigation strategies. With their participation, each REC is eligible to apply for HMGP funding towards potential mitigation projects. The Ozark, Barry, Southwest and Webster Rural Electric Cooperatives have been actively working towards this goal with the Southwest Missouri Council of Governments since January 2011.

All hazard mitigation planning efforts require public notification and an opportunity for public involvement. SMCOG, on behalf of each of the area Rural Electric Cooperatives, invites you to provide comments and input on their local chapter of the statewide plan. Additionally, a copy may be secured by email request to Dave Faucett at the Southwest Missouri Council of Governments (davefaucett@missouristate.edu ). If you have comments or concerns related to the plan, you may email Mr. Faucett at the address above or call 417 836-6901.
