Flood disaster relief for regional Queensland

Disaster assistance is now available to seven more flooded local councils following extreme monsoonal rainfall and flooding across regional Queensland.

Support has been approved through the jointly funded Commonwealth-State Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA) in the local government areas of Burke, Doomadgee, Lockhart River, Longreach, Mareeba, Mount Isa, and Townsville.

Federal Minister for Emergency Management Senator Murray Watt said this assistance will provide financial support for counter disaster operations aimed at public safety and the restoration of essential public assets such as roads and bridges to get the communities back on their feet.

“As flood waters have receded, we’ve acted swiftly to extend immediate financial support to affected councils,” Minister Watt said.

“The Commonwealth and Queensland Governments have worked closely over the past few weeks to support 26 councils across Queensland so they can get back on their feet sooner.”

Queensland Acting Minister for Fire and Emergency Services Mark Furner said today’s funding announcement will assist these councils with restoring damaged public infrastructure and alleviate the financial burden on these impacted communities. 

“This January monsoonal rainfall has seen extensive flooding, damage to public infrastructure and road closures across Queensland, including the continued isolation of Burke and Doomadgee Shires,” Minister Furner said. 

“It’s important Queensland communities know that all impacted local government areas are being supported, no matter how remote, with assistance to clean-up and recover.”

The jointly-funded DRFA assistance is available in the local government areas of Barcaldine, Barcoo, Boulia, Burdekin, Burke, Carpentaria, Cook, Croydon, Diamantina, Doomadgee, Etheridge, Kowanyama, Lockhart River, Longreach, Mackay, Mapoon, Mareeba, Mornington,Mount Isa, Napranum, Northern Peninsula Area, Palm IslandPormpuraawTownsville, Whitsunday, and Winton.

One of the few patriots left who understands the system and how it has been totally subverted under every citizen's nose. If we can help to turn it around we will, otherwise our children will have nothing. Our investigations show there is no 'government' of the people for the people of Australia. The removal of the Crown from Australian Parliaments, followed by the incorporation of Parliaments aided by the Australia Act 1987 has left us with corporate government with policies not laws, that apply only to members of political parties and the public service. There is no law, other than the Common Law. This fact will be borne out in the near future as numerous legal challenges in place now, come to a head soon.

  1. So they offer assistant for something they created ? Or am I now just being cynical?


  2. The Minister forgot an item. The Army will be sending in a crack team of actors to walk handfuls of debris from one trailer to another. Then they will move off and hold other victims down for jabbing. Oh, jabbimg is suspended is it?


  3. All being manipulated of course.
