Flood disaster wait

THERE was still no word from the Federal Government yesterday on whether or not Gympie would be declared a disaster following the February flood.

Mayor Ron Dyne said he was still waiting to hear a response following submissions from the Gympie Regional Council and State Government on the level of damage inflicted on the region's infrastructure, businesses, farmers and morale by its fourth flood in a year.
