Residents urged to help get Monto the aid it needs
MONTO residents will meet tonight to discuss plans to get the town back on track.
A Monto Ratepayers and Residents Association representative said the town need- ed to unite to put a case to all levels of government for recovery assistance.
“The attention is all on the coast and we need the army to repair roads and fences here right now,” the representative said.
“Farmers need non-taxable grants and we need food drops. We need this done now.
“This is a chance for all community members to make a positive contribution to getting back on track.
“All community members, not just a few, should attend, to put a case to all levels of government for direct and immediate assistance.”
The meeting will be at Monto Community Hall tonight at 7.30pm.
