THE TOWN COUNCIL AND THE HIGHWAY BOARD. -On Tuesday, representatives of the Town Council and Pool and Forden Highway Board met at the Town Hall for the purpose of arriving at a decision respecting the claim put forward by the Corporation for the repair of part of Guilsfield road (said to have been done in error for acme years), and also fur money over-paid for repairing Folly bridge.—After the Mayor had opened the case, Captain Mytton said the Highway Board could not allow for past expendi- ture. as the auditor would not p.iss it.—Alderman Kogers suggested that the Board should, for a certai t: number of years, repair that portion of the road which the Council bad in error been doing.—After a considerable amount of discussion as to the exact amount in dispute, Captain Mytton drew up the following minute, which was accepted :—" Should it appear, after looking at the contract, that the Corporation have paid for materials for the bridge in addition to half the cost, the Pool and Forden Highway Board will allow half the amount including half the cost of supporting the old bridge."—As to the other c:aim, the Mayor thought it but reasonable that the Corporation should be refunded the money they had expended in error, and a refusal to do fo wae praetical robbery.—The membars of the Boar.i were unable to agree to the suggestion, but finalh Capt. Mytton stated that he and his colleagues woul 1 recommend that in future the Pool and Fordei Board should repair the road from the turning of Mr Daviea's, of Varchod, to the borough boundary n< the Guilsfield-road, the Corpora io i repairing from Sarn Briige to Mr Davies's it being clearly under. hod that the expense of maintaining the Foil Bridge should be borae in equal proportions.
