Council will now work with QRA to “justify” expenditure

A REVIEW of Whitsunday Regional Council's 2009 Natural Disaster Relief Recovery Arrangement (NDRRA) program spend, including works on in excess of 200 roads, has been delivered to the Queensland Reconstruction Authority (QRA) for investigation.

Whitsunday Council chief executive officer Scott Waters said preparing the report had been "a lot of extra work" for the council after it was given a one-week deadline to deliver the review.

Mr Waters said the council would now work with the QRA over the next few months to "justify" the expenditure, which sits at a value of $43 million.
