Zonta members and BankSA
staff, as well as guests from the
Northern Domestic Violence
Service, attended the launch
on Friday, which Zonta's Pru
Blackwell said was successful in
"It's an escalating issue af-
fecting women, but, if we are
to proactively work towards re-
duction in this area of violence
against women, we really need
men and women to combine,"
Ms Blackwell said.
"The elevation of the issue is
absolutely important for com-
munities to understand so they
can work towards these strate-
gies to support women."
The project has travelled to
various towns in the state and
fits within the context of Zonta's
international campaign, Zonta
Says No to Violence Against
In Australia, one woman is
killed every week as a result
of domestic violence and one
in five women are affected by
domestic violence in its many
"It affects every aspect of
families as well, not just wom-

ect will be on display at BankSA

GAWLER Council is expecting to boost its surplus by
more than $800,000 for 2014/15.
However, most of the new savings will have no impact on
council's overall cash position.
Earlier this year council projected a $32,834 surplus, but
its first quarterly budget review estimated a significantly im-
proved result of $905,415.
Finance manager Paul Horwood said $608,444 of the new
savings are due to a reduction in property depreciation, re-
sulting from the revised asset valuations earlier this year.
As The Bunyip reported in September, recent implementa-
tion of a new Australian accounting standard resulted in a
one-off $8 million write-down on council's land and asset
Mr Horwood said due to the reduced building and land
value, council was now incurring less depreciation.
"Depreciation is based on the value of the asset," he said.
He said it was, nevertheless, a positive projection for coun-
cil.Mr Horwood said the remainder of the new savings,
$264,000, primarily relate to additional grant funds and re-

The tribunal last determined
allowances for elected members
at the November 2010 election.
In 2010, it awarded the lo-
cal Mayor $56,000 per annum,
the deputy mayor $17,500 and
However, elected members'
pay packets have been growing
annually as a result of indexation,

Elected members adopted the
new allowances and benefits poli-
cy at last month's meeting.
