The Minister for Police and Emergency Services Michael Gallagher has added Central Darling Shire Council (CDSC) to the State list of local government areas affected by natural disasters.

There are now 53 shires declared.

This means the Shire can access assistance schemes to repair infrastructure, particularly roads, that have been damaged either by flood or the exceptional rain experienced in recent months.

The Natural Disaster recovery schemes are also supported by the Commonwealth Government.
