FURTHER STREET IMPROVEMENTS. The Chairman mentioned that as they had had a Local Government inquiry upon the proposed loans for street improvements in Glamorgan-street, and as there was but little doubt the loans would be consented to, he begged to move that tenders be advertised to for carry- out the work. If the matter was delayed very long the winter would be upon them before anything was done.—Dr. O'Donnell asked if that did not apply to Kenilworth-road and Oban-street.—The Surveyor said the Bourd had plans for these streets that had never been opened.—The Chairman included these two streets in his motion, and Dr. O'Donnell seconded.—Mr. Thomas demurred. He agreed with doing all that could be done by the Surveyor as soon as possible, but he would not advertise for tenders. He t thought they could not carry out the Glamorgan- street works without doing the parish road.—The motion was then agreed to. THE PLANTING- OF TREES. The Chairman said that the time had come when they should recommend the Board to plant trees upon the Holton, Weston, and Court road. He begged to move that tenders be adver- tised for for planting trees and the erection of tree-guards.—Mr. Thomas seconded.—This con- cluded the business.
