MACHYNLLETH URBAN COUNCIL. Mr T. Parsons presided over the ordinary meeting of the Machynlleth Urban District Council held on Monday. Otners present ^vere Messrs R Gillart, E. Morgan W. Sadleir, J. Micah, J. Evans, J. Pugh, D. Smith H. l>ewis, E. Jones, and Dr Wil- liams, with Mr E. Gillart (clerk), Dr Davies (medical officer), and Mr Thomas (inspector and surveyor).. The Clerk reported that he had handed over f-300 to the account of the Mawddwy Railway Company, and had received the debenture certificate. In reply • to a letter from Mr Gough, secretary of the Cambrian Resorts Asso- ciation, the Clerk was instructed to say that the Council were not in a position to increase its liability. Correspondence with the Home Office and the Local Government Board as to adopting certain portions of the Public Health Amendment Act was referred to a com- mittee. It was resolved to ask the tenants of the lock-up shops to pay for the preparation of the agreements and leases, inasmuch as the Council had met them in other matters. The agreement with the County Council in respect of the niainterarice of main roads was referred to a committee. Mr Gillart said he hoped the matter would be tackled in earnest and without "slay. On the motion of Mr H. Lewis, seconded by Mr R. Gillart, it was resolved to give the County Council three months' notice to terminate the present agreement, as the Council did not consider the contribution adequate. Mrs Williams, Skinners' Arms, wrote calling attention to the fact that house re- fuse was deposited in a lane near her field, and saying that if the deposit were carried on to her field by the flood, she would hold the Council responsible. It was agreed to reply that the deposit of the refuse in the lane was an accident, and that the Surveyor had been instructed to communicate with the contractor, saying that the Council repudiated all liability. The Council having called the attention of the War Office to facilities for camping and training troops in the neighbourhood, a letter was read from the headquarters of the Western Command, stating that whilst fully recognising the hearty manner in which the Territorial troops were received in the neighbourhood of Machynlleth dur- ing the ilialiceuvre; in August, it was con- sidered that for training and camping pur- poses generally the locality was most suita- ble. The Collector of general district rates reported having collected £ 126 17s 2d, leav- ing £ 560 10s 6d outstanding. Replying to a question, the Collector said that Y-50 of the first instalment was irrecoverable owing to vacancies and ap- peals. Directions were given to the Collector to take any steps necessary to recover the arrears.
