Auditor's Report on Gellygaer Council's Finances. The report of Mr. W. D. Propert, the dis- trict auditor, in regard to the finances of the district for the period ended 31st March, 1909, contains several points of public interest. The report states that all the liabilities of the late Rural District Council were taken over by the Urban Council, including loans amounting to £ 16,038 Os. 7d., and that these had in the first half-year of the Urban District Council's exist- ence been reduced to £ 15,551 0s. 7d. There were also considerable sums, certified to be due from members and officers of the late Parish Council and overseers, still outstanding pend- I ing the decision of the Local Government Board on the appeals. No adjustment had yet been made with the Neath Rural District Coun-I cil, who took over the parish of Rhigos for I highway and "Sanitary purposes, and the bal- ances owing, by the parish of Rhigos at the date of tha abolition of the late Rural District Council aad now. due to the Urban Council. This should..receive immediate attention. The expenditure during the half year amounted to £ 9,336 15s; The principal item of expendi- ture was £ 4,863 upon- highways—90 miles; pub- lic lighting, £ 672: sewerage, £ 603; fire engine and brigade, £ 311; hospital, £ 212: elections, 2126. The delay on the part of the Council in making tba»appointments of Medical Officer of Health and Inspector of Nuisances resulted in theiiv^jpspective salaries for the period ended 7th February, 1909, amounting to L99 7s. 6d., being illegal charges in the accounts, but, hav- ing regard to all the circumstances, the ex- penditure in question was sanctioned by the Local Government Board. One half of the salaries thus paid, B49 13s. 9d., would have been recovered from the County Council had the appointments been made promptly The first general district rate at la. 6d. in the £ produced1 £ 8,409 8s. 8d.
