Money flows for storm damage

THE STATE Government has declared the Clarence Valley a natural disaster area, to allow special emergency funding that will help pay a $611,385 cleanup bill left after storms earlier this year.

More than $200,000 worth of damage a day was inflicted on Clarence Valley roads when storms ripped through the region in late June and early July.

Under commonwealth/state natural disaster arrangements, businesses, farms, sporting clubs, churches and community groups can apply for funding if they are able to demonstrate hardship caused by the weather.

For more information, organisations can call Clarence MP Steve Cansdell on 6643 1244.
