PUBLIC WORKS COMMITTEE. A meeting of the Public Works Committee was held on Tuesday afternoon last, when the members present were Mr J. Arthur Hughes (in the chair), Dr P. J. O'Donnell, and Mr J. A. Manaton. The Committee decided to refuse the offer of the Mercantile Marine Board to increase the width of the road at one portion, and to encroach upon another portion opposite the proposed new offices at the junction of Station-street and Dock View- road. It was decided to employ a man for the purpose of clearing the beach at Whitmore Bay of paper, &o., and the Island of weeds; also that when the new estimate was brought before the Committee, they should consider the advisability of putting on extra roadmen. The Surveyor was authorised to give notice to Mr John Thomas and Mr D. Paulett to give up the land at the Buttrills which the Council have acquired for recreation purposes. A letter from Mr William Thomas, solicitor, Cardiff, with reference to the alleged right of way to the Three Bells Inn, Cadoxton, was ordered to lie on the table. Communications were received from the Barry Railway Company and the Board of Trade with reference to the buoys in Barry Harbour, and it was decided not to remove the same. Mr R. Hammond, C.E., wrote with reference to the report which he presented on the question of electric light scheme, and enclosing his bill for £ 61 7s.-Some of the members thought Mr Hammond should report upon the question of the electric tramways, believing it would pay the town, but the Chairman pointed out that this was not a question for this committee to consider. With the view of laying out the Barry Recre- ation Ground, the Surveyot was instructed to visit Carmarthen and there visit the recreation ground. This was all the public business.
