    Floods in Steelville are an ongoing issue, but a proposed flood plain map that could drastically change flood zones in the town could create more problems for property owners. The maps currently being formulated were discussed at the most recent city council meeting held on February 3, with concerns about the changes addressed. The potential updates could affect a number of local businesses and property owners who could be required to pay increased costs for flood insurance, and would create further development problems for the city.
