Flood mitigation works worth between $3-4 million are being recommended for the town of Carisbrook, near Maryborough.
The options for new flood defences were unveiled last night at a public meeting attended by about 90 people.
The main feature of the recommended option is a levee to the west of Carisbrook.
The community now has three weeks to have its say.
The town was one of many hit by major flooding in 2011.
