The Usual Complaint

[Old News]

Saturday 12 January 1878

Mr AUTON drew attention to the slow progress of the kerbing and also asked if Mr Hobson and Mr VARLEY had seen about a piece of ground for the stabling and sanitary soil.-Mr ROBSON replied that Mr Varley had been busy and had not had an opportunity of seeing to the work.-Mr COOK thought they were not tied to a rnonth as to seeing about the ground, &c… but Mr DOWSLAND thought different; he commented severely on the dilatory manner in which some of the members carried out the duties allotted to them; they were always postponing that and the other and the consequence was that they seemed to get nothing done, and they would drive everything until next summer—like the asphalting was left a short time ago.   He was sorry the clerk was ill, he had neglected his duty by not taking down the full details of the minutes and likewise in not sending the papers he had received about the sanitary cart and patent sweeping brush. Moreover, he had not appointed anyone to act in his place as secretary. He concluded by proposing that the resignation of the Inspector of Nuisances be accepted.-Mr Auton seconded the resolution which was carried unanimously.
