PRESTATYN. URBAN DISTRICT COUNCIL. The monthly meeting of this Council was held on Wednesday night, when there were present Messrs. W. H. Coward (chairman), Thomas Williams (vice-chairman), John Jones, J. B. Linnell, Thomas Hughes, Robert Davies, Ellis Roberts, John Pritcha.rd, J. E. L. Jones, Dr. Griffith, Messrs. J. Hughes, (clerk), and W. C. Bell, surveyor. THE ADOPTION OF ROADS. It was recommended by the General Purposes Committee that Cement Road, Victoria Avenue, Sandy Lane, and Chapel Street, when sewered, levelled paved metalled, flagged, channelled, and made good to the satisfaction of the Urban Authority of Prestatyn, be adopted and dec- lared highways repairable by the inhabitants at large. Mr. John Jones urged that the Council would have to adopt the roads before the bye-laws were passed, or they would not be able to do so at all. If the roads named were adopted by the Council after the byelaws were passed, the Councillors voting for their adoption would render themselves liable to heavy penalties. The Clerk explained that the Council in General Committee had decided to recommend the deferring of the adopting of the byelaws. After some discussion, Dr. Griffith proposed, and Mr. Hughes seconded, that the Committee's recommendation be confirmed. This was carried, as was another motion pro- posed by Mr. Linnell, seconded by Mr. Ellis Roberts, to defer the adoption of the byelaws. Dr. Griffith then moved, and Mr. John Jones seconded, that application be made to the Local Government Board to amend the application of the Council so as to substitute Sandy Lane, Victoria Avenue, and Cement Road for Aber Road, Plas Avenue, and Clwyd Avenue from excemption clauses. This was passed. RATE COLLECTION. It was reported by the clerk that the total collection of the General District Rate amoun- ted to £836. Mr. John Jones congratulated the collector on the excellent way in which the, rates had been collected. There were he believed only about 920 outstanding, and that was very creditable to the clerk and the district. ELECTION OF OVERSEERS. Messrs. Ellis Roberts, Goronwy Jones, and T. T. Scott, were appointed overseers for the ensuing year, and a vote of thanks was passed to the old overseers for their services. TAXATION OF GROUND RENTS. A circular sent on the subject was read, and on the motion of Dr. Griffith, seconded by Mr. John Jones, it was decided to petition Parlia- ment in favour of the taxation of ground values. SUNDAY TRAINS. Mr. Robert Davies moved that a petition be sent to the Local Government Board, asking ttiem to restrict the service of trains on Sun- day, on the proposed light railway between Rhyl and Prestatyn. Mr. J. E. L. Jones seconded the motion, which was carried. A POLICE STATION ASKED FOR. Dr. Griffith gave notice that he would at the next meeting move that application be made to the County Council for a police station at Prestatyn.
