Road to recovery
MOST of the state’s $1.8 million National Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements funding has been used, Gympie Regional Council’s Works and Services Committee Chairman Larry Friske said yesterday.
He said unlike the last major flood event, council got stuck into repairing roads after the January/ March heavy rainfall.
He said in the first 60 days following, council suspended all other road works, used every available employee, worked weekends and hired contractors to get as much work as possible completed.
Cr Friske said most of the eligible works were now completed.
