The ongoing problems facing Lismore residents
John Stanley checks in with the Mayor of Lismore, Steve Krieg, to get an update to see how the Lismore region flood recovery is going.
Steve expresses how the people of Lismore are having to make the hard decision on whether to relocate or to take the risk and rebuild.
Another issue that residents of this region face is banks and insurance are warning a critical window of opportunity to resurrect Lismore after the nation’s worst flood event is in danger of closing.
The council and town fear residents and business owners will either leave the region or use insurance and government grants to reinvest in areas later deemed uninhabitable.
