Forum to discuss domestic violence
A STRATEGY to address domestic violence is set to be discussed at the next City of Belmont information forum this week.
The issues was raised in April by Councillor Pat Gardner who called on the City to allocate funding for a feasibility study to see what it could do to help victims of domestic violence.
The council decided to defer the issue for further research, deputy mayor Robert Rossi said.
“This issue is scheduled for discussion at the August 2016 information forum,” he said.
“This has allowed officers time to research and investigate the issue.
“Following the Information Forum, a further report will be put to council.”
