Llanfairfechan Urban District…


Llanfairfechan Urban District Council. THE usual monthly meeting of the above Council was held on Friday evening last. Mr R C. Evans presided, and there were also present Messrs T T Owen, L D Jones, W G Roberts, Robert Hughes William Owen, John Harrison, John Williams' R R Owen (Waen), T G Morgan, and the clerk. A Deserving Case. A letter was received from the patents of a blind girl in the district, asking for assistant, in order to send her to the Swansea and South Wales Institu- tion for the Blind. A list of articles of clothing necessary were enclosed in the application. Mr Robert Hughes suggested that the list be sent to the matron of the institution for conhrmation and if she endorsed it the chairman be empowered to obtain the articles. Increase of Salary. The Highway and Water Committee recom- mended that Henry Thomas, one of their men, be granted an increase of salary from 22s to 23s. Mr Robert Hughes asked what reason Thomas gave in applying for more wages. The Chairman said the man considered he was underpaid, and that the Penmaenmawr Council paid their men more. Mr John Williams said he thought they would perhaps pay still more if he enquired at Penmaen- bach. (Laughter.) Mr Briggs' Complaint. With regard to the complaint of Mr Briggs, of Ashfield Villa, about water flowing on his land it was decided that Messrs T J Owen, R C. Evans, and R R Owen, together with the surveyor, be deputed to consider the matter. Loan for Improvements. A discussion arose on the advisability of affecting the following improvements, and of raising a. loan to meet the expenditure, (a) To erect Council offices with accommodation for fire appliances and materials, (b) Ns.v groyne at East end of promenade. (c) Filling Llyn- tomstone. Mr W. G. Roberts proposed that the matter be not entertained, and said that raising a loan would mean a great additional burden on the lodging houses. Mr T. J. Owto proposed an amendment, and Mr J. Williamsseconded, that the Council make the groyne at the east end of the prome- nade, filling Llyntomstone, and general im- provements, on thb promenade. Also the new road at Ty Pitch, and that a loan be raised to make these improvements. He pointed out that the only means to enable the ratepayers to pay their rates is to make the place attractive to visitors, and that with a loan the rates will be much less than by improving with the current rate. The amendment was declared carried.
