Council invites written submissions - no public meetings planned

Mayor Liz Innes, in her video briefing yesterday made it clear that the community recovery catch-ups are only for people directly impacted, but are not open forums.

Council advise the sessions

"will provide members of both communities with the opportunity to talk one-on-one with representatives from bushfire support agencies. They can discuss support available, get assistance with navigating the recovery process, or simply have a bit of a chat.

"Support agencies include Rural Resilience Program, Rural Financial Counselling Service, BlazeAid, Service NSW, Salvation Army, Red Cross, Eurobodalla Council, Rural Resilience Program, and health and wellbeing services."

For members of the community who were NOT 'directly impacted' such as those who in business who suffered financial loss or those who lost their jobs, Council invites them to send a letter describing their experiences, ideas, information and views and also to make a submission to include in Council's report to NSW Bushfire Inquiry.

They also encourage individuals to make their own submissions to the NSW Bushfire Inquiry.
