Residents in the Lachlan Shire hit by major flooding this year have missed out on federal funding.
The district is ineligible for Natural Disaster Assistance because its total loss of agricultural production is not high enough.
The General manager, George Cowan, says because of the size of the shire, some parts were completely unaffected, while others are still underwater.
"We've had some areas that were quite devastated by the flood, because it's such a large area in our shire, there's many areas that are basically flood free," he said.
"We've actually got properties that are still under water out here and farms that haven't been able to sew winter crops, and so the damage has been quite severe on those particular properties, but it hasn't been widespread enough."
Mr Cowan says he will be writing to the commonwealth asking for changes to the eligibility criteria.
"Council in considering the issue, resolved that I should write to the federal member and the relevant ministers and put the case, because it's probably going to be difficult for a shire the size and shape of Lachlan to ever meet that threshold criteria."
The neighbouring Bland Shire is waiting to find out if its application for commonwealth assistance has been approved.
