Yenda residents have been shocked to hear more needs to be done to end their insurance cost nightmare.
The Insurance Council of Australia has recently said Griffith City Council has to provide them with flood mapping for them to lower insurance premiums.
Yenda Progress Association president Kay Pellizzer was sharply taken aback by the news.
It shattered the belief premiums would go down with the opening of the East Mirrool Creek regulator in October, as she was told by council officials.
"It's highly important they do the mapping then, because most of us need to lower our insurance," she said.
Mayor John Dal Broi told ABC Radio he was "disappointed" at the result, coming after they had approached the Insurance Council to remove the flood plain status.
In a recent Floodplain Management Committee meeting held in October, Utilities Director Graham Gordon said mapping was "not a high priority at the moment due to the current climatic conditions."
"He clearly isn't paying $5000 for insurance then is he," Mrs Pellizzer exclaimed.
When asked if this position had now changed, Council responded to say that Mr Gordon is aware of the insurance companies position, yet said his position had not changed.
"Funding priorities remain the same due to the very dry climatic conditions with no problematic rainfall conditions predicted for the next 12 months."
The Insurance Council of Australia have said council is encouraged to provide the raw data for inclusion in the Insurance Council's National Flood Information Database (NFID).
"This enables the insurers to reassess the hazards for each address and fine-tune their risk-based premiums," a spokeswoman for the company said.
"Almost all flood-exposed local councils in Australia have provided their data to NFID."
Griffith council said they have commenced prioritising projects for the 2020 - 2021 Capital works budget.
"Council is aware a new Flood Planning Area map will be required once mitigation measures are completed.
"Flood mitigation design has been completed for Yoogali and Council has secured funding for construction work to commence next year.
"Designs for Hanwood flood mitigation are currently on public exhibition."
