Residents not expecting flood funds bonanzaBy Frances Adcock, Friday April 19, 2013 - 11:53 EST
Residents of Good Night Scrub near Bundaberg say they may not get much flood disaster funding, despite being isolated for up to three weeks.
Last night, residents packed the community hall for a meeting with both the Bundaberg and North Burnett mayors and police about raising the two bridges which are often cut.
Council estimates it will cost more than $30 million to raise the bridges.
Resident Tony Wright says it is unlikely everyone will be happy with where repair funding is spent.
"With a population of 400 no-one is going to fork out a whole lot of money to raise the bridges I can tell you now," he said.
"What we will get is noticeboards, communication but you can forget about a bridge.
"Yes you can forget about that - it seems we just have to make better use of what we have."
The Bundaberg Regional Council has asked for $290 million in Betterment funding.
