Dauphin County Commissioners discussed the next phase of a program that will reduce flood insurance programs. 19 municipalities have signed up for a flood program offered by Tetra Tech. Homeowners in the community are currently paying $4.5 million in annual premiums. Through the new program, each municipality will go through a rating system. Based on that rating, people could see discounts between five and 45%. Municipalities that have signed up for the program include: Susquehanna, Swatara, Derry Middle Paxton, Londonderry, Lower Paxton, Lower Swatara, Upper Paxton, East Hanover, West Hanover, Halifax and Mifflin townships; and Steelton, Lykens, Paxtang, Royalton, Millersburg, Hummelstown, and Halifax boroughs. Considering joining is Middletown and Harrisburg, which is already enrolled in the rating system and whose residents receive a 20% discount.
