D’IBERVILLE — With revenues down and expenses up, D’Iberville is following other cities and looking for ways to cut costs.

City Manager Michael Janus tells The Sun Herald that $900,000 has been cut from the budget, which should see the city through the budget year that ends Sept. 30.

Officials say Iberville will have the only Class 5 rating in the state in the National Flood Insurance Program in the coming year.

Building official Hank Rogers said this means flood-insurance savings in the AE and VE zones will increase from 15 to 25 percent starting Oct. 1 and in other areas from 5 to 10 percent.

Rogers said people should check their renewal bills after Oct. 1 to make sure they receive the discount.
