Council to highlight financial grants case

Comments Off on Council to highlight financial grants case

HORSHAM Rural City Council will write to the federal government to outline the importance of Financial Assistance Grants.
Nanjing Night Net

It comes after council received a letter from Australian Local Government Association chairman Troy Pickard and Municipal Association of Victoria president Bill McArthur about the issue.

The letter said the groups’ campaign to maintain the grants was gathering momentum.

The government moved last year to freeze indexation on the grants for three years.

The two associations estimate the freeze will cost councils across Australia $925 million by 2017-18, and theywant the government to reverse the decision.

The letter asked councils to pass a resolution acknowledging the grants’ importance in helping councils deliver essential community services.Horsham councillors agreed unanimously.

The letter stated while the grants were paid through each state’sLocal Government Grants Commission, the funding was federal money.

The groups asked councils to ensurefunding was identified as federal grant money in any council publications and reports to help push the campaign.

Horsham councillors voted to do this.

Councillor Heather Phillips said the grants were critical.

“We get $598.70 per head for recurrent grants, but we spend around $2094 per head,” she said.

“We get about our quarter of our local spend from theFinancial Assistance Grants scheme–we could not run the municipality without them.”

Council will write to Deputy Prime Minister and Regional Development MinisterWarren Truss to highlight its plight.

Words alone won’t stop violence

Comments Off on Words alone won’t stop violence

NSW Premier Mike Baird has this week announced domestic violence will be one of his 12 priorities.
Nanjing Night Net

While the sentiment is admirable the announcement needs to be backed up by action and funds.

So far, his track record has not been good.

While he managed to find $1 billion to rebuild two existing sports stadia he has presided over cuts to domestic violence shelters and services and cuts to the Family and Community Services department.

Both of these areas must be funded if the state is to get truly serious about tackling domestic violence head on.

The government, and the community, need to get as angry and as scared as they do when a shark tries to bite off a man’s leg.

They need to be as outraged as they were when Daniel Christie was killed by a one-punch attack in Kings Cross.

When the 18-year-old died the government sprang into action, increasing the penalty of one-punch attacks and introducing laws in the Sydney central business district which aimed to stop it happening again.

It took the death of just one young man to bring about these changes.

So why is there still at least one woman dying at the hands of her partner, or ex-partner every week?

Why are men who harass, intimidate, breach apprehended violence orders still getting a mere slap on the wrist?

Why are women still being turned away from shelters and services, not because they aren’t worthy of help and support, but because there is no room for them.

These poorly funded, understaffed services are unable to help hundreds of women a year.

How many women have lost their lives because Mr Baird’s government have made these cuts?

We may never know, but one thing is certain — more money is needed, fast.

Do it now and stop more women from losing their lives.

Memories stolen

Comments Off on Memories stolen

An Eaglehawk residence was ransacked and burgled on Monday leaving most things of value behind.
Nanjing Night Net

Jess Berrill and her daughter Aaliyah Booth returnedto their Church Street home after their day, to find thieves had stolen from the bedroom, the lounge room and the dining room.

Unfortunately for Ms Berrill what the thieves did take meant much more to her than any material item they left behind.

A box containing about 15 small video tapes were taken along with the camera they were recorded on.

Seemingly opportunistic thieves stole precious video recordings of her nine-year-old daughter’s birth and childhood.

“It has my daughter being born, her growing up and just before my grandfather died,” she said.

“There is nine year of my daughter’s life on those cameras.

“The box was precious too.

“It was a wooden box with a carved celtic cross on it.

“That is unique in itself.

“You can’t replace that stuff.”

Ms Berrill, a social worker, said the items stolen had surprised and caught her off guard.

“It’s weird the stuff they took,” she said.

“Wouldn’t it make sense to grab my computer?

“The stuff they took is irreplaceable.”

Ms Berrill said she did not care about the camera she just wanted the memories returned.

She said the thieves also stole some of her jewellery.

“They took the bracelet I got when I was born,” she said.

“They took the huge crystal I bought when I got a new job recently.”

Aaliyah Booth said she was surprised the thieves did not take her guitar or something of more value.

“Those tapes might have poppy on them,” she said.

Ms Berrill said the window in the bathroom was where the offenders entered the house.

Bendigo Police confirmed the break in happened between 8am and 7pm.

If you saw anything in the area on Monday Police urge you to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
