BUILDERS AND BOARD AT BRIDGEND. AMUSING CORRESPONDENCE. At the ordiniry meeting of tin Iridoreil T; ci Board hold on Tuesday evening, be lerk read the following correspondence which h icl passed between himself aid the hon secretary of the Bridgend Builders' Association â ⢠Bridgend Builders' Association. May 22, 1894. The Bridgend Local Doard. Dear Sirs,âI am instru-ied to forward to yoar board a resolution passed at a meeting of the above association held last nigh,, which was as fuiiows â That the members or the deputation appointed by the association to examine the ac JlUUt8 and vouchers of the board. ;md advertised to be open for inspec- tion prior to the audit, at the Local Board's offices, were informed by ar. officer of the board that there were no such documents on view on the preruist 8 t Tiie Associatiau is therefore compelled to pro&es against this irregular and illegal proc du e, aud desires to be informed when and where it is proposed to hold the audit above referred to.âYours iaith- fully, I 'P. J. Thou as, Hen. Sec.' 'Bridgend Lo.-al tfoaid. iriagend, 'May 26, 1894. Dear Sir,âThe Chairman has handed me yonr letter of the '!lud inst (directed to the board, but addressed to him) on behalf of the Bridgend Builders' Association. I am directed to request that all future < ommunicat.ions to the bo:»rd shall be directed to me. With reference to the resolution referred to in your letter, I have out that your association, as such, has no right to examine the accounts and vouchers of the board. I have instructed enquiries to be made into the nr'.rtt.r. and find that two ratepayers went to the bourd offices oue dny Inst week. The Surveyor was absent, and the Collector intormed them that his accounts were open to their inspection, but the accounts and voucher" which I keep as Clerk were not. there, but could no doubt be seen at mr offices. Px.th the g-en- tlemen having been men. be' of the board, of course knew this to be so, although tui' notice of audit necessarily fixes the offices of tb" bo.ird as the place of inspection. Neither of the gentlemen, iiewever, caiae to see me on the matter, nor did they make any representation to me that they were desirous of inspecting the vouchers, occ. Had they done so I should have been most pleased to have afforded them every facility. Witii reference to the concluding poitou of the resolutien, I have to say that the audit stands adjourned to the 5th prox. at 12,30 p.m., and due notice of this has been given, as required by the Act. and to add that the board and its officers find it difficult i indeed to fully comulv with all the requirements of the Public Health Act in consequence mainly of the 'irregular aud illegal procedure adopted by a few persons with whom their official duties bring them in contact.J'-ind who persiteu ti y ignore the board's bye- laws, as instanced by the fact til,1t the Works Com- mittee were compelled to refer bacK four separate oi plans submitted to them by the Hon. Sec. of your association as being both irregular and illegal' naving regard to the Public Health Act 187o and to the bye-laws of the board.âYours faithfully, T. J. HrGHE-. Clerk ⢠P. J. Thomas. Hon. Sec. ⢠Bridgend Builders' Association.' Builders' and Artisuns" Association, 'Bridgend, June, 1 bt»4. Bridgend Local Board Aie.it. Dear Sir,âIn reply to yours of the 25th of May, I am directed to state as fellows Tint the depu- tation cf ratepayers (as you prefer the term] whe called at the advertised place on Thur.^iay, May 17th. between the hcurs of three aud four in the afternoon were informed by the Collector that there was not a single voucher or bill of any kind on the premises the only thing be had to saow was the rate-receipt book. If the Clerk is the person res- ponsible, his nesrleet in tUb particular renders him liable to penalty, although it might be imagined from the insulting commuuication received that he is the injured party. The audit was advertised for the 19th May, IS!14, at the board's offices, but was not held then, and it is uot within the knowledge of any ratepayer connected wi:h this association that any advertisement has appeared of the postpone- ment. I am further requested to inform you that the association is not concerned with the private affairs of their Hon. Sec., and surely the board ought to be able to ensure that its business is con- ducted in a regular and legal manner, and tha.t its officers, being to ail intents and purposes, the ser- vants of the public, are instructed to treat all com- munications from ratepayers, whether individuals or representatives, with at least decent courtesy.â Yours truly, 'P. J. THOMAS, Hon. Sec. The Clerk, Bridgend Local Bo&ra.' The Clerk said he sent the Collector to acquaint the ratepayers in question when and where they might see what they required, but they did not come afterwards or attend the audit. One of the gentlemen made him a present of his compliments (laughter). The Chairman You forget, they were afraid of being- kicked out. The Clerk, explaining this allusion of the Chair- man's, said when the Collector suggested they should go to the Clerk's office they said they would be on private ground and might be kicked out. The matter then dropped.
