GREAT BUTTON. PARISH COUNCIL.-The quarterly meeting was held on Tuesday evening, Mr. Peter Owen presiding.-The Clerk intimated the receipt of a statement of the accounts in connection with the Eastham Burial Board, fibm which it appeared that the receipts, together with a balance brought forward of X54 18s. 5d., amounted to the sum of aC92 12s. 5d., the expenditure for the same period being 16s. 84.—A letter was read from the clerk to the District Council stating that the Council were now empowered to water the roads in the township whenever they may consider it necessary, the accounts to be forwarded to the District Council for payment. A further letter was read from the District Council respecting a nuisance in the ditch at the side of the high- way in Great Sutton. The District Council were desirous to know if the Parish Council would approve of the nuisance being abated by carrying out a plan for the sewerage of the whole place, or if they would acquiesce in the laying of a temporary drain which, in the opinion of the surveyor, would cost zCZ5, but the District Council wished it to be distinctly understood that the temporary drain could not be laid in such a manner as to be utilised in a general scheme of sewerage here- after.—Mr. Hughes stated in the course of his remarks that the same nuisance had been inspected some months ago by himself, Mr. Jenkins, and Mr. Woodward, and they found the drainage to be very defective and quite inadequate to convey the effluent to its proper place, consequently in the hot weather the effluvia arising therefrom were most disagree- able and offensive, and thereby became a public nuisance to the community.—The Chairman was of the opinion that the property-owners concerned should be called upon to abate the nuisance and not the Parish Council. The estimated cost of the proposed drain would involve a 3d. rate on the township.—After the matter had been further considered, it was resolved that the Clerk be instructed to com- municate with the District Council, stating that this Council were of opinion that it is not the duty of the Council to inaugurate a system of drainage for the purpose of putting other people's property in a sanitary condition, but that the property-owners from whose property the nuisance emanates should be called upon to institute such measures as would be conducive to the abatement and removal of the alleged nuisance; and the Parish Council trust that the District Council would deal with the matter in a prompt and thorough manner, in order that the nuisance may be suppressed as early as possible.
