Forum to consider Gympie flood mitigation optionsBy Bruce Atkinson, Tuesday March 4, 2014 - 11:13 EDT
Gympie residents will meet today at a public forum to find the best way to prevent flooding in the CBD.
Last month, Gympie council rejected a plan to build a levee to mitigate against future floods due to a cost blowout.
Ideas now being considered include resuming flood prone land for parkland, a transit centre or parking.
The best solutions will be sent to the Queensland Government for possible funding.
