State of Emergency funding needed

As the weather clears, our attention will move to the clean up effort. Our community will work together, but we will need assistance from all levels of Government. I join my State Parliamentary colleagues in supporting a State of Emergency being declared, allowing individuals and councils to access emergency funding to support the clean up.

Throughout the past few days I've been in contact with emergency services, fellow mayors and State Parliament colleagues. I'll continue to monitor the situation and work towards our region's recovery.
