DISTRICT AND PARISH COUNCILS. 4 HOYLAKE DISTRICT. The monthly meeting of the Hoylake and West Kirby Urban District Council was held on Monday, in the Public Offices, Hoylake, Mr. J. F. Ellison presiding. The other members present were the Rev. F. Sanders, Messrs. George Wall, Charles Roberts, P. Wilkinson, R. Bird, R. A. Alfred, J. Ezard, J. F. L. Clare, S. Jones, W. S. J. English, Hart Binner, and A. T. Salvidge. Mr. Bird, in moving the adoption of the Road and Improvement Committee's pro- ceedings, called attention to a recommendation that the whole of the works in connection with the parades at Hoylake and West Kirby, and the Marine Lake at West Kirby should be taken in hand and completed by Mr. Foster, their surveyor, who is to be allowed a commission of 2 per cent. on the estimated cost of the works, provided the work be carried out to the satis- faction of the Council, and subject to Mr. Foster's giving an undertaking that he will remain in the employment of the Council until the works are completed.—The Chairman said this was to be a charge on the amount set apart for contin- gencies, a sum of about £2,300 forming that fund. The commission was not an addition to the estimate, for the contingencies fund had already been allotted,and out of that the commis- sion would come.—The minute was adopted.— Mr. Ezard asked if the sub-committee specially appointed to inspect some channelling, &c., at Earl-road had done so, and whether the charges made against the surveyor had been found true or untrue ?—Mr. Bird, chairman of the com- mittee, said the inspection had been made, and the work was found to be perfectly satisfactory. (Hear, hear.) He must complain of a member of the Board, Mr. Bell, having shown such distrust of the committee as to go to Earl-road at six o'clock in the morning and make the men pull up some of the channelling for him alone. —Mr. Ezard said it was a very wrong thing for him to do, and he had never heard of such a thing before. It would be well for the Board not to listen to such complaints in future, unless they were made formally in writing.—Mr. Salvidge said he thought it infra dig. for the Board even to appoint the committee to in- vestigate the charges of Mr. Joseph Price. (Hear, hear.)—The Chairman said they were quite satisfied that Mr. Foster had done his work well. He always did. They never bad had any reason to think otherwise. (Applause.) It was only due to him that the inspection should be made, and the report made to the Council, who had entire confidence in the surveyor. (Hear, hear.)—The minutes were adopted, and there was no further business of public interest.
