David Lendennie, E911 / Floodplain Management
The E911Coordinator's position was created in 1989 to oversee implementation of the E-9-1-1 Emergency Telephone System. All roads, houses and business locations outside incorporated areas of Mississippi County were renumbered prior to E-9-1-1 becoming operational. The service went "on line" in November of 1990 and is available to all residents of Mississippi County. There are two Public Safety Answering Points (PSAP) for the Mississippi County E911 system. One is located at the Mississippi County Sheriff's Department and the other at the Blytheville Police Department. The E911 Office is responsible for planning, organizing and coordinating the operation of the E911 system; GIS digital map updates; 911 address grid-map preparation and issues addresses for new structures.
The office of the Floodplain Administrator serves as the point of contact for persons needing a permit to build inside a special flood hazard area within the unincorporated areas of Mississippi County and the cities of Manila, Marie and Wilson. If you live in a city not listed above you may call your mayor's office to determine if your home or business is located in a special flood hazard area.
