Flood victims hope for 'voice'

By Frances Adcock, Friday April 12, 2013 - 13:00 EST

Residents of communities south-west of Bundaberg hope a new advisory committee will give them more of a say in local decision-making.

Good Night Scrub and Morganville are located on the edge of the Bundaberg council boundary and both communities have been cut three times by this year's floods.

Committee secretary Helen Damon says it is hoped residents' concerns will be heard.

"Up to now we have been ignored, a lot of the community has felt that we are a side issue and that's why this progress association has been formed to help give our community a voice," she said.
