Strathbogie Shire has launched a Mobile Flood Recovery Hub to link our community to support services and gather feedback into potential projects and activities to support the region’s recovery.
In October this year, Strathbogie Shire was hit by a major flooding event with about 40 homes inundated by flood water.
“Our region’s businesses have also been impacted, with some of our biggest tourist accommodation providers forced to close for what could be many months,” Mayor, Cr Laura Binks, said.
“While our Flood Recovery Team has been working hard to support families and businesses impacted, we’re keen to ensure we spread the message of support as far as possible and we’re hitting the road.
“We have launched a Mobile Flood Recovery Hub which will provide an opportunity for community to come together, link to support services, and provide input into our Flood Recovery Planning.”
Cr Binks said Council was keen to hear about what projects and activities are needed to support Strathbogie Shire’s recovery.
“The Mobile Flood Recovery Hub will be visiting Avenel, Euroa, Nagambie and Kirwans Bridge in coming weeks,” she said.
“If you can’t attend an event – head to www.share.strathbogie.vic.gov.au and share your advice.”
The Mobile Flood Recovery Hub will be:
- Euroa: Friday, December 9 from 5pm to 7pm at Binney Street Twilight Market
- Avenel: Wednesday, December 14 from 2pm to 6pm, near Daily Dose.
- Kirwans Bridge: Thursday, December 15 from 1pm to 3pm, CFA shed.
- Nagambie: Thursday, December 15 from 4pm to 6pm, Jacobson’s Outlook.
