Almost all of Gunnedah shire's drought projects have been ticked off.
The 12 projects funded by $1 million from the federal government's Drought Communities Program (DCP) are complete or on the cusp of completion, except for the $80,600 of upgrades at Lake Keepit Sailing Club, which has been extended.
Mayor Jamie Chaffey said the projects had been "really successful".
"[The DCP] assists communities like Gunnedah to be better prepared to deal with drought and the effects of drought and to stimulate our economies by employing local individuals and companies to provide the goods and services," Cr Chaffey said.
"Our projects have certainly achieved both of those outcomes."
Cr Chaffey said the project he was the most excited about was the installation of water dispensing outlets in Gunnedah and the surrounding villages.
"It will mean easier access to water for those in need and allow a quicker response time," he said.
"On behalf of our community, I want to thank the government for the funding program and we look forward to ways we can continue to work with other levels of government to provide for a better and stronger Gunnedah shire into the future."
