With the impact of the March floods still being felt, Billinudgel residents and businesses are being urged to come together to discuss how the village can develop a flood plan for the future.
North Byron Shire Business Chamber is putting on a free after-work sausage sizzle on Tuesday, 10 October, at the Billinudgel Hotel from 5:30 pm to entice locals along.
‘All are invited to come and talk about flood recovery and how the North Byron Shire Business Chamber can support businesses in the formation of a local disaster recovery strategy,’ said the chamber’s Ken Barnham.
‘Local businesses can work with authorities such as SES, police, Byron Shire Council and the Rural Fire Service to develop ongoing future responses to flooding, fire and natural disasters.
‘Part of the strategy would be early warning and local storage of signs and equipment to assist in the local community based management of adverse events,’ Mr Barnham said.
Representatives from the NSW Business Chamber, the North Byron Shire Business Chamber and After the Flood will also be in attendance.
