Kempsey flood mitigation systems to be reviewedFriday March 15, 2013 - 09:33 EDT
In the wake of the recent flood event, the Kempsey Shire Council will today hold three meetings to discuss flood mitigation systems with residents.
The first meeting will be at the Belmore River Flood Gates at 9 o'clock this morning, followed by a gathering at the Kinchela Flood Gates Right Bank, and a final meeting at Glenrock Drain.
The council's Kathy Oliver says the organisation knows improvements can be made and is keen to hear feedback from locals.
"They're important so we can get some feedback from the community, sharing their experiences and what information they want access to so we have an idea what the community is looking for," she said.
