The Facilities Management Department manages the county-owned land in the St. Charles County Flood Plain. Management includes renting land to citizens of St. Charles County as well as maintaining the land that is not currently leased.
Flood Plain leases are renewed at the beginning of each calendar year. The leases are $10 per year for parcels up to one acre and $20 per year for parcels over an acre. Lease terms can be made for 1 or 5 years, with 1 year free included in a 5-year lease. Please note that adjacent property owners have first right to refusal. Also, only government entities can own flood buyout properties, not citizens.
The Community Development Department is responsible for code enforcement of all of the improved and unimproved land in the St. Charles County Flood Plain. Contact the Community Development Department for all code enforcement issues in the St. Charles County Flood Plain.
