Forget when and where, flood map issue must be addressed

 Probably the biggest battle Bullitt County will face in the next decade was discussed for the first time last Wednesday.

The altering of the flood elevation maps by the Federal Emergency Management Agency could be catastrophic to the future of Shepherdsville, in specific, and Bullitt County, in general.

Engineering work has been going on for the past 20 years on making changes to flood maps throughout the country.

It just so happens that due to a rash of major natural disasters, FEMA is out of money.
