St. Asaph (Denbigh) Rural District Council. THE TOWYN ROAD. In the absence of the Chairman and Vice- Chairman Mr. William Jones (Penporchell) pre- sided over the monthly meeting of this Council held on Friday at the Board Room, St. Asaph Union. LLANFAIRTALHAIARN WATER RATE COLLECTOR. The Council had under consuderaition the ap- pointment of a water rate collectoir for the parish of Llanfair. The Clerk stated that the terms upon which the collector at Llandciulas was. appointed was c per cent. on the amount collected. Mr. Robert Davies (Bettws) How many times will the rate be collected1 in the) year? The Clerk: Four. The collections must be made quarterly. Mr. Griffiths was the collector of other rates in the parish. Mr. T. Ufelym Jones proposed that they gave Mr. Griffiths £ 3 for doing the work. I It was ultimately decided to appoint Mr Griffiths as collector upon the terms of 5 per cent upon tne sum coueCUe1(.h A complaint regarding road surface water near Trefnant Station was considered, and it was decided to divert the same into, the sewer. OVERFLOW CESSPOOLS AT LLANDDULAS. A letter was read from Mr. D. Williams, Bod- afon, Llanddulas, in reference to the overflow from the cesspools at Fair View and the Work- ing Men's Club, Llanddulas, which, he said, seriously troubled him, and he requested the Council to cause the nuisance to be abated at once. The Surveyor stated that he had given notice to the respective owners—Mr. Wynne, Garth- ewin, and the Gwrych Castlie Estate-but the request had not been complied with. Some- thing ought to be done. The Clerk also stated that he had written about the matter to the owners.. Mr. Thomas Evans asked if the Council had no authority to. do the work themselves and charge the owners for it. It was deemed best to make the owners com- ply with the Council's request to attend to the matter at once, failing which the Council would have to prosecute them. AN ABERGELE COMPLAINT. The Clerk read a communication from the Abergele Urban District Council calling atten- tion to, the state of Towyn-road, between Ty Gwyn and Foryd, and alleging that at present it was in a depllotrable state, that motorists ana others were ceasing to use it, and that Pensarn was suffering material damage, and in the sum- mer the consequences would be disastrous un- less it was put in order. Mr. Thomas Evans stated that on Monday last there were three of them on this road, and he did not know what was wrong with it. The road was right enough. If the Abergele Council looked after their footpaths and the main sewer, which was in a scandalous state, it would pay them better. The sewer was quite blocked, and the sewer went near the best houses in Pensarn. j For an authority like the Abergele Council to teach them how to do their roads was an insult to the Rural District Council. (Hear, hear.) Mr. Hugh Hughes I drove over the road the other day, and it was all right. Mr. Thomas Evans The road is in excellent oirdier. Mr. E. O. Evans (Surveyor) It is one of the best roads in the country. Hr. Phillip Williams, road surveyor, in reply to a query from the chair, said he agreed with Mr. Thomas Evans that the road was a good one. The only thing that was to. be afraid of in some people's opinion, was the small stones which had to be laid down in certain parts. The Clerk wasf also of opinion that there was no cause for complaint. THE JOINT HOSPITAL SCEME. A letter was read from the Local Government Boardenquir.ing as to the present position of the proposed scheme for the provision of a hospital. The report of the Joint Committee was con- sidered, in which it was stated that plans had been prepared, and it was decided that the Sur- veyor complete plans and prepare estimates.
