Council responds to damage to essential assets

Friday, 8 December, 2017

Assessments made by Council have determined over $5 million worth of damage to essential community assets as a result of the recent major flood event.  

Since the event, Council staff have been on the ground undertaking emergency works to protect the public from hazards created by the floods, including putting up barricades, as well removal of tree debris and partial road closures.

Council is now addressing the restoration of essential community assets, which include infrastructure such as roads, bridges, footpaths and levies.

Council has made a Natural Disaster Funding Claim to State Treasury for the damage to essential assets, projecting costs to exceed $5 million. 

Staff will proceed as quickly as possible on priority works, with the opening of bridges the highest on the list. 

If you have identified essential infrastructure that needs immediate attention and you haven’t yet contacted Council, please do so by calling 1800 065 993 or email the details to  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
