A meeting of this Council was held on Saturday, the members present being
Messrs. HENDERSON (chairman),  MARSHALL,  TEASDALE,  E. BATEY  and  KENNEDY
with the Clerk (MR. WILKINSON).

Several accounts were ordered to be paid.
It was decided that the footpath from the bridge to the Station be repaired,
and the Chairman, MR. MARSHALL,  and  MR. KENNEDY be a committee to carry
out the work.
The Clerk was instructed to inform MR. KYNNERSLEY, County Surveyor, that a
complaint had been made of an over flow of water down the bank near the
Hotel, and that it had run down against the new Reading Room.
He was also instructed to call the attention of the North Eastern Railway
Company's engineer to the dirty state of the approach to the station during
the past winter, and to request that the officials be asked to pay more
attention to it.
It was also resolved to recommend the Railway Company to devise some better
means for foot passengers to cross the line at Blenkinsopp Junction, the
present mode being considered unsatisfactory.
The Clerk was instructed to call the attention of MR. CROUDACE, manager at
the Byron Colliery, to the state of a culvert at Bankfoot, which requires
repair.
