04/08/2016 - Warracknabeal's last chance to have a say on levee design

Yarriambiack Shire Council is having two final drop-in sessions at its Warracknabeal office this month to give the community a chance to have input into the final levee design.

Chief Executive Officer Ray Campling is inviting people to view the design and talk to council staff next Wednesday August 10. A second drop-in session is on Wednesday August 24. Both sessions are from 4-5pm.

"We've had some really good interest in the levee designs over the past month but we want to make absolutely sure everyone has had a chance to view the plans and provide input," he said.

"These one-on-one sessions give people a really good opportunity to see how high the levee will be and what it will look like. They can also talk to council staff about how the plans affect their front yard or the creek over the road, and outline any concerns or ideas they might have."

The Warracknabeal levee is part of the Warracknabeal and Brim Flood Investigation by Wimmera Catchment Management Authority, Water Technology, the council and a community steering committee.
