The Surveyor, according te instructions received at the last meeting, reported on the road through Porthkerry Park, which Messrs.

The Surveyor presented an amended estimate of £ 2,462 17s, Sá" a reduction of £ 500, upon the one presented at the former meeting. The Surveyor reported that Mr. Jones, contractor, for the Porth-road, declined to reduce his estimate for manual labour-from 3s. Mr. William Savours proposed that fresh tenders be advertised for. General Lee proposed, and Mr. J, M. Savours seconded, that Mr. James's tender be accepted. This was agreed to. The usual monthly bills were signed, and a cheque for £ 413 for the Surveyor. A letter was read from the Rev. H. Daniel*, Sully Rectory, complaining of the condition cf somt bridges en the footpaths between Cadoxtou and Sully, and Sully and Dinas Powis. The Surveyor was instructed to report on the matter. The Chairiaan drew attention to the very bad condition of the approach to the Aberthaw Ra 1- way which was at present rather dangerous. The road was in a very bad state. The Surveyor was instructed to prepare a report on the subject.
