Moonee Valley City Council was successful in securing a grant from Emergency Recovery Victoria to fund recovery activities to support community, sporting clubs, community groups and businesses that were affected by the October 2022 flood event.

To ensure that the activities delivered meet the needs of affected community, we will form a Community Recovery Committee to co-design the recovery activity plan. Recovery activities may include community connection events, community meetings, workshops and training opportunities, community services support drop-in sessions and more.

The Community Recovery Committee will meet monthly until the end of May 2024 with possibility of extension. It will be made up of affected community members.

Ideally, we hope to have a committee comprising:

  • Up to 5 affected residents from Rivervue
  • Up to 5 affected residents outside of Rivervue
  • Up to 3 affected business owners
  • Up to 3 representatives from affected sporting clubs/community groups
  • Up to 3 representatives from the broader community (not flood affected
  • Manager EPMO & Accountability (accountable for the program)
  • Community Recovery Officer (oversees the delivery of the program)

Meetings will be held monthly starting in September, and will be scheduled in line with member availability where possible.

Applications will be assessed by a panel comprising of the Chief Emergency and Resilience Officer, Community Recovery Officer, a representative from Emergency Recovery Victoria, and an independent person.

The committee will be finalised late August to early September 2023.
