SCR 5 - This concurrent resolution urges the City of DeSoto and Jefferson County to establish a Joachim Creek Joint Task Force to establish an early warning system to alert citizens of the need to evacuate during a flash flood event, to conduct a study of areas affected by frequent flooding and determine if an organized property buyout is possible, and to identify methods that allow the Joachim Creek area to use such flooding as an economic development tool. Suggested members of the Task Force are set forth in this resolution, and additional members may be added by majority vote. Further, this resolution provides that the Task Force may elect a chairperson and other officeholders from within its membership.
