UNCLAIMED FUNDS - ARE YOU ON THE LIST? 

Do you have unclaimed money from overpaid bills, unclaimed rebates, lost cheques or payments that you are owed?

Names of those owed money are published in the Government Gazette which the Council receives. To assist our residents, we have compiled a list of residents in the Goyder region, published in the recent Government Gazette, who have unclaimed money.

Is your name on the list? If so, please contact the organisation to which the money is held with.

After an organisation has held the money for 8 years it is then sent onto the Department of Treasury and Finance. You can also search the Treasury department’s website — treasury.sa.gov.au/search-um — to see if you are owed any further money.

 
DOB IN A LITTERER
A new public litter reporting app and website, developed by the Environment Protection Authority (EPA) will give power to the people who see someone litter. 

The Dob In A Litterer app is free and easy to use. After downloading onto your Android or Apple phone or tablet, users simply complete a once-off registration process to commence reporting. 

The app has been specifically designed to target littering from vehicles.
