LLANELLY BOROUGH COUNCIL. — ♦- I THE FINANCES OF THE TOWN. The monthly meeting of the Llanelly Borough Council was held on Monday, at the Town Hall, Mr. Ernest Trubshaw presiding, there being also present: Messrs. D. W. Rees,Joseph Maybery, John Thomas, Josiah Davies, Joseph Williams, A, Edgar Davies, W. KnoyJe, John Griffiths, J. S. Tregoning, junior, William Coombs and J. Hansard, together with the clerk (Mr. H. W. Spowart), deputy ctcrk (Mr. D. Davies) and the Surveyor (Mr. George Waifceys"). eH URCH STREET. The offer of Mr. Thomas respecting the widening of Church-street, by the moving back of his premises, was refused by the Highway Committee on Friday last. The question was further discussed at the meeting of the Council on Monday, and a regret was felt that no agreement could be come to. The Chairman suggested that the Committee should further consider the question and see Mr. Thomas, and talk the matter over with him. The suggestion was adopted. SOME NEW HOUSES. Mr. Tregoning referred to the plans of houses proposed to be built in the Furnace, plans which were considered at a recent meeting of the Sanitary Committee. Mr. Tregoning observed that it was impossible to drain these houses properly. The surveyor, indeed, had said that they could not be witho ut a connec- tion with the Forge drainage. He thought tho Council were not asking too much that when people proposed tp build houses, they should ascertain whether it was possible to properly drain the district. The houses in question would, no doubt, constitute a very awkward drain- age question for a number of years to com*. FINAKCK. The Chairman referred to the question of finance arising out of the minutes of the Finance Com- mittee. He observed that, the election expenses amounted to a little over £ 14. A fact which they had to regret was that the accounts were overdawn to the extent of £ 2-530. This was un- satisfactory, but he hoped that the financial position would be shortly improved by the collection of the rate now outstanding. The Finance Com- mittee had discussed the matter with the Collector and had impressed upon him the necessity of getting the rate in as soon as possible, especially as another rate was practically due, which, how- ever, it would be useless to make until the large amounts now outstanding were brought in. He hoped, therefore, that the ratepayers who were in arrear with their payments would pay up immediately, pay up in order to avoid unpleasantness in the form of summonses. More- over, it was unfair that those who paid promptly, should be mulcted in interest in consequence of the dilatoriness of others. HOSPITAL COMMITTEE. Mr. Joseph Williams and Mr. Arthur Edgar Davies were appointed to represent the Council on the Hospital Special Committee. JXTERMBDIATB SCHOOL. Miss Bessie Thomas, Mr. Tom Hughes, and Mr. J. S. Tregoning, junr., were appointed to represent the Council on the governing body of the Inter- mediate School. The next, ordinary meeting of the Council falling on Whit Monday, it, was decided that the meeting be held on the last Monday in May. UNtOX BRIDGE. Mr. John Griffiths referred to the unsatisfactory condition of Union bridge. One of the coping stones had been thrown down and several were loose. The Surveyor aid he would write to Mr. E. H. Lloyd at once. BKYN KOA7). Mr. Josiah D.ivies brought before the notice of the Council the condition of the entrances to the above road. As a matter of fact, there was no entrance worthy of the same The Surveyor said he bad reported the matter to the last meeting and he had seen lilr.
