SSDC officers to visit flood villages
By Yeovil People | Tuesday, January 28, 2014, 15:49
SSDC is today (Tuesday 28th January) sending a team of senior staff to meet Muchelney and Thorney residents, to offer information and advice about Council Tax relief, housing, benefits, waste and to take queries about any other Council services.
Mark Williams, Chief Executive at South Somerset District Council, says:- “The flooding situation may continue for some time. We are providing these emergency Council “surgeries” to ensure residents have up-to-date information on what SSDC and other agencies can do to help and to offer reassurance at this difficult time.
All residents are welcome. Two surgeries are taking place simultaneously – one at the Church of St Peter and St Paul in Muchelney and the other at a private residence in Thorney – from 1 to 3 p.m. All residents are welcome and have been contacted. Further surgeries will be arranged as needed.
We are immensely grateful for the work of the Fire & Rescue Service who visited every household over this past weekend. We are collating the information they have provided and ensuring that this is passed to the right agencies to help those people who are in difficulties.”
If you have been affected by the recent flooding and would like help or advice about Council Tax relief, housing, benefits or other services, please speak to an SSDC Customer Advisor on 01935 462462.
