Workman, J. Knight. G. Mundy, T. J. Smith, Reuben Morgan, W. Marfell, A. F. Lucas (clerk), T. Rees (collector, surveyor, &c.) NEW YEAR'S GREETINGS. The Chairman said he wished to take that opportunity of wishing all the members a Happy and prosperous New Year, and to express the hope that the work of the Council would go on during the coming twelve months as it did throughout the last year, when he did not think that anything more unanimous, more friendly, or better could have been hoped for. (Hear, hear.) They had a long programme before them that night, but he hoped that it would not take them long, and afterwards he should be pleased if they would come and spend an hour with him at home. (Applause. )j THE STREET COMMITTBB reported the receipt of two tenders for stona hauling on the roads from H.M. Prison, viz., from Mr George Mundy, jr., at Btd, and MrT. Morgan, at 10d a yard. The lower one was accepted. Report adopted. THE SURVEYOR reported that the cess-pit at Lower Mill Cottages had not been attended to, but he was informed by the owner that he had employed someone to do the work, which should have been carried out. He (the Surveyor) was having the metalling placed on the roads in readiness for the steam roller which was due on the morrow. He had ordered 200 tons of Hirwain stone, about 40 tons of which had been delivered. With these and the local stone he had in hand, there would be sufficient for repairing this- year. Mr Knight said the work at the Lower Mill had now been done. A communication was read from Mr Barnes, stating that he and his son had been ill, and the steam roller was under repair, but he would send it as soon as possible. The Clerk was requested to write urging that the roller should be sent as soon as possible, and it was decided to refer the matter to the Street Committee in view of possible contingencies.
