HIGH W AY COMMITTEE •» I PROPOSED FOOTPATHS IN THE BOROUGH. A meeting of the Highway Committee of the Llanelly Borough Council was held at the Town IJall, on Friday last, Mr. J. Hansard presiding. CONSIDERING THE REPORTERS. Mr. J. Griffiths drew attention to the fact that the committee-room was rather too small for the committee meetings. If there were a couple more members present, there would be no rests for the reporters' books Mr. Guest said that when reporters went to a public meeting, they had nothing to reet their books on. They must do the same here. However, Mr. Griffiths did not agree with Mr Guest. The matter dropped. THE MILL BRIDGES. I The Surveyor reported in reference to the Mill bridges. He said he was unable to get the Stepney Estate to undertake to open up a road from Andrew-street to Swansea-road. He, therefore, recommended the committee to re-construct the footbridges in iron, similar to the bridge over the LHedi river near the back of the union workhouse. The cost of the work would be about P-80 to E90. Mr. Guest asked the surveyor if he had received a letter from Mr. Wilson. The Surveyor said he had not. Mr. J. Griffiths said it was the wish of the rate- payers to have a cast iron bridge. Mr. J. Williams supposed that both bridges would be of one span. The Surveyor Practically one span. Mr. J. Williams proposed that the recommenda- tion of the Surveyor be accepted. I Mr. D. Thomas seconded and it was carried. A PLAN. I Mr. G. Blake submitted a plan for laying out for I building purposes the triangular piece of land abutting on the borough boundary on the East side of New-road. According to the plan it is proposed to arch over the borough boundary. The back street varied in width from 12 feet to 20 feet. The object of making the width 20 feet at the extreme end was to allow oarts to turn easily. It was recommended that the plan be passed subject to the Surveyor seeing Mr. Blake, and having the plan marked so as to shew the borough boundary. POWER OF THE GAS. I The illuminating power of the gas for the past I month was as follows March 5-7 -30 p.m., at the Town Hall, 14-10 candles „ 9-8-15 „ „ „ 14-20 „ 11 10-740" 140 „ „ 16-7-40 91 „ 1490 „ 17-8-45 Gas Works, 14'24 „ 19-7-30 „ „ Town Hall, 14-20 A COMPLAINT. I Mr. H. Iiowells complained of the unfinished state of the path in front of his house, situate on east side of New Dock Road. The Surveyor stated that the usual custom in such cases was for the owner of the premises to provide the material and the Council the labour. It was decided that the surveyor see the owner of these premises with a view of carrying out his recommendation. A LAMP FOR DOCK CHAPEL. I Mr. D. Thomas asked the clerk if he had received I a letter from the Dock Chapel deacons in reference to light in front of the chapel. The Clerk replied in the negative. Mr D. Thomas thought it must have been mis- laid. The Chairman: Did you not bring this matter up at a previous meeting, Mr. Thomas ? Mr. J. Griffiths No, I did (laughter). Mr. Tregoning: Is this the last? Mr. Griffiths: No, more to come (laughter). Mr. Tom Hughes suggested that the surveyor should go down and see if a lamp was required. It was decided to place a medium lamp in front of the chapel. REPAIRING AND CONSTRUCTING FOOTPATHS, I The Surveyor reported upon the cost of repairing and constructing footpaths within the borough. The estimated total cost was £2,674 5s. 6d. If the paths were all formed, they would greatly add to the appearance of the town and the comfort of the public. It was lecommended that the surveyor's report on this subject be circulated among the members of that committee with details shewing where the footpaths would commence and end. I THS SANDY BRIDGE. I The Surveyor reported that the Mynydc1 Mawr I Railway Company had repaired the damage at the I end of the Sandy bridge. THE SPACE NEAR TABERNACLE CHAPEL. I The Clark said that the Tabernaele people wanted the Council to re-consider their decision in reference to the closing up of the space near their chapel. Mr. Tregoning said that the Tabernacle folk had met them in a friendly way, and he did not object to putting the ground in a proper state. It was decided that the surveyor should report I on the matter again.
