Contact will also be made with Indonesian authorities to determine the priorities for re-establishing the damaged areas affected by the tsunami,'' said Alex Darling, Wollongong mayor, as quoted by ABC News.

Alex said the council has to setup the working party because it don't want make any mistakes and put money in big black hole. ''We want it to be a worthwhile project, such build homes. You can build a kit home which is acceptable for about $3,500, so $200,000 will build a lot of homes,'' Alex said. © abc/dro
