Ten Years of Building Resiliency

On Saturday, July 23, 2016, the Walton Flood Commission and Flood Plain Manager Stephen Dutcher held an event at Veterans Plaza (formerly Walton Reporter Building).  The day was spent informing the public of the progress that has been made through flood mitigation work since the flood of 2006 and displays were available to show future work that will be done.  Many enjoyed music by Coyote Junction, good food, and watching the local 4-H groups plant new shrubs and trees (Thank you!).
