2021 Eastern Australia Storms and Floods – updates from the Australian Government

Rebooting the community after drought

Hay

Our Far West NSW RRO Claire Butler recently had a chat with Ali McLean, Project Manager for Economic Development at Hay Shire Council, to find out about the work the council is doing to reboot the community following the challenges of drought and COVID-19.

Ali says that the community accepts that drought is a given – it’s just a matter of how long and how hard the drought is. But there is a greater understanding of how it impacts the whole community, and how they can plan for it and support the community as a whole.

Watch their chat below.
