Sec. 6-2-15. Duties and responsibilities of the floodplain administrator.

The duties and responsibilities of the floodplain administrator shall include, but not be limited to:
(1) Permit review. Review all development permits to determine that:
(A) Permit requirements of this article have been satisfied,
(B) All other required state and federal permits have been obtained,
(C) The site is reasonably safe from flooding,
(D) The proposed development does not adversely affect the carrying capacity of the areas where base flood elevations have been determined but a floodway has not been designated. For purposes of this article, “adversely affects” means that the cumulative effect of the proposed development when combined with all other existing and anticipated development will not increase the water surface elevation of the base flood more than one foot at any point.
(2) Review and use of any other base flood data. When base flood elevation data has not been provided in accordance with Section 6-2-7, the floodplain administrator shall obtain, review and reasonably utilize any base flood elevation and floodway data available from a federal or state agency, or other source, in order to administer Part E. Any such information shall be submitted to the city council for adoption.
(3) Notification of other agencies. In alteration or relocation of a watercourse:
(A) Notify adjacent communities and the California Department of Water Resources prior to alteration or relocation;
(B) Submit evidence of such notification to the Federal Insurance Administration, Federal Emergency Management Agency; and
(C) Assure that the flood-carrying capacity of the altered or relocated portion of said watercourse is maintained.
(4) Documentation of floodplain development. Obtain and maintain for public inspection and make available as needed the following:
(A) Certification required in Section 6-2-17(3)(A), lowest floor elevations,
(B) Certification required in Section 6-2-17(3)(B), elevation or floodproofing of nonresidential structures,
(C) Certification required in Section 6-2-17(3)(C), wet floodproofing standards,
(D) Certification of elevation required in Section 6-2-19(2), subdivision standards, and
(E) Certifiication required in Section 6-2-22(1), floodway encroachments.
(5) Map determinations. Make interpretations where needed, as to the exact location of the boundaries of the areas of special flood hazards where there appears to be a conflict between a mapped boundary and actual field conditions. The person contesting the location of the boundary shall be given a reasonable opportunity to appeal the interpretation as provided in Part F in this article.
(6) Remedial action. Take action to remedy violations of this article as specified in Section 6-2-8. (Ord. No. 1342, (part): Ord. No. 1125, (part).)
