Alternative sites for future floods are now being considered by the committee.
Numerous communication problems, including the loss of power and Vodafone and Optus services were noted.
The State Emergency Service will now take more responsibility for notifications during floods.
It's also reviewing the location of the Lanes Bridge gauge because it's possible it isn't measuring water levels accurately.
Road restoration, including fixing damage caused by landslides, will use up most of the $4.5 million the council is seeking from the Roads and Maritime Services.
