Mr Sibbering, the Taff Vale Railway en- gineer, wrote with reference to the condition of the railway bridge near Gelliwastad Grove. His company proposed to re-construct this bridge, and they considered this a favourable opportunity for the Council to have it widened. At present it v;as 18 feet wide, and if the CC>1ncil required it widened to 36 feet, then they would have to pay the cost of such widen. ing. If the company reconstructed the bridge they could not be compelled to make it wider. Mr Jones-PowdI thought if the bridge was to be altered, it would be well for the Council to have it widened. Mr James Roberts-sofa" he believed it was the company's intexition to widen the line at this point, and so increase the length of the bridge. They could oppose the widening of the line unless they granted them a wider bridge. He suggested they should ask Mr Sib- bering to submit a plan shewing the structure of the proposed new bridge. They would then know the cost of the widening. Mr Jones-Powell seconded, and the motion was carried. The Mayor of Blackpool wrote stating that the Royal Congress of Public Health would be hdd at that town, and asking the Council to send representatives there. It was decided to place the matter on the agenda for considera- tion at the next meeting. On the motion of the chairman. Mr Samuel Rowland was formally re-appointed sanitary inspector at a salary of JE110 per annum. Mr James RoSerts asked if they could not get the department to recognise both inspectors and so obtain a moiety of their salary refun- ded. According to the numerical strength of the district, he thought they were entitled to more than one inspectot The Clerk was instructed to enquire into the matter.. It was decided to -adver-tise for'tenders for cleaning and repairing the Town and Council clocks. Mr Edward Williams queried whether some- thing could not be done to the road in front of the Central Hotel, Trallwn, It was im- possible to pass along the road in wet weather unless they went by boat. The Surveyor said the work would come under the Private Street Work3. The Vice-chairman proposed that the road be kerbHl and channelled, and the Surveyor was instructed to take the usual steps.. The Surveyor submitted a report on the rural roads of the district. The Council de- cided to metal several portions of roads, and tj appoint a new roadman on the Eglwysilan roads. Mr T. B. Evans asked whether Howell Jjtreet, CClfynydd, improvements were being proceeded with.
