The Surveyor was instructed to erect the public urinals in different parts of the district, as originally agreed to. HAULAGE AND SCAVENGING CONTRACTS. The Surveyor reported that the haulage and scavenging contracts would expire on the 1st of May, and it was agreed to advertise for tenders for the renewal of the same for twelve months, the Chairman remarking that this was the best time of the year to do so.—Mr Meggitt asked if the present system was cheaper than the old system.- The Surveyor replied in the affirmative, and Mr Meggitt said the work was being well done now. BATHING NOTICES AT BARRY ISLAND, The Surveyor reported that the public bathing notice at Barry Ireland had been wilfully re- moved.—It was decided to replace the same, and at the suggestion of Mr Meggitt it was resolved to ask the Barry Company for permission to erect a notice board on the bridge leading to the island calling attention to the bathing regulations. A HITCH. Mr Pardoe stated that Mr Pinn, of Riverside- road, Cadoxton. would not allow the private improvements to be carried out in front of-his houses, but he (the surveyor) had seen Mr Spencer on the matter, and he informed him Mr Pinn was liable for the private improvsments.-It was determined to defer the work for the present. THE WIDENING OF ROBIN'S-LANE. It was explained that the work of widening- Robin's-lane, Cadoxton, was not proceeding, inas- much as the site of the stable abutting thereon had not been secured.—Mr George Thomas pro- mised to see Mr D. T. Alexander on the matter. PROPOSED WIDENING OF BARRY-ROAD.
