The land-owner must contact Council and request an inspection and estimate for restoration works required. Council staff will inspect the roads nominated and include them for assessment by the Roads & Maritime Services (RMS) as part of the Richmond Valley Council Flood Restoration funding application. Council does not inspect or claim for Crown Roads under normal conditions as they are not under Council control but if requested by an affected land-owner can assist in processing the claim for repairs. There is a limited time available to report damage and property owners living on roads not regularly maintained by Council should consider advising Council of any repair requirements as early as possible. Please contact Council on 66600300. Submissions will close 24 February 2012.
