Wingecarribee Shire Mayor Duncan Gair launched a Mayoral Relief Fund set up by Council to assist residents of the Wingecarribee Shire that have been directly impacted by the bushfires.
The Green Wattle Creek and Morton fires have caused significant damage to a number of our Shire’s communities.
“Although emergency services teams are still onsite counting the losses, we’re bracing for the reality that dozens of structures may be lost,” the Mayor said.
“It’s going to take a long time to recovery from this disaster and I know a lot of people want to assist those residents impacted and help them return to some semblance of normality as soon as possible."
“On behalf of my fellow Councillors and all the staff of Council I would like to extend a huge thank you to all our firefighters and everyone helping with the ongoing efforts to protect our community,” the Mayor added.
Council is no longer accepting donations to the Mayoral Relief Fund in relation to the 2019/20 summer bushfires.
Due to the generous donations made by members of our community, Council was able to provide financial assistance of $123,000 to over 200 families and individuals who have been affected by the Bushfires.
Should you require any further information in relation to the Mayoral Relief Fund, please contact Council’s Chief Financial Officer on (02) 4868 0888.
Applications for financial assistance via the Mayoral Relief Fund closed Friday 28 February 2020.
