SPECIAL MEETING OF THE TOWN COUNCIL. MR. PREECE JAMES' "B" PLANS PASSED. BY NINE VOTES TO TWO. PROPOSED EXPENDITURE OF £ 3250. At a special meeting of the Tenby Town Council, held in the Council Chamber at three o'clock last Friday afternoon, the extension of the Culvert on the South Sands was advanced another gtage-a final stage as far as the Cor- poration is concerned, and it now rests with the Local Government Board to give the necessary sanction for the carrying out of this important and already too-long delayed work. There were twelve members present at Friday's special meeting, and by a majority of nine to two (the Mayor, who presided, refraining from voting) it was decided to pass and accept the B plans submitted by Mr J. Preece James, sanitary engineer, Frogmore, Tenby, who competed with two other engineers (Messrs. Chase and Broome, of Liverpool, and Mr J. T. Moss-Flower, of Bristol), and sent in his plans under the nom de plume of "Civitas." At a meeting of the Sani- tary Committee, held on Monday, October 3rd, this question of the extension of the Culvert was considered at some length, and ultimately it was decided to recommend the Town Council to adopt Mr James' "B" scheme plans, the resolution to this effect being carried by the narrow majority of one—six votes to five. A section of the Council, it appeared, were in favour of one or other of the two competitive schemes, and at last Friday's special Council meeting it was thought probable that an attempt wonld be made to throw over the Sanitary Com- mittee's recommendation regarding Mr James' scheme, the cost of which he estimates at JS5250, which is £ 100 less than than the scheme of Messrs. Chase and Broome, and something like £ 7000 cheaper than that of Mr Moss-Flower's. Fortunately for the pockets of the ratepayers the larger and more expensive project was not brought forward, for though undoubtedly a skilfully worked out scheme, it was altogether too elaborate for a town the size of Tenby, while the cost (JB11,000 roughly) made its adoption prohibitive from a financial point of view. The acceptance of a local engineer's scheme is a gratifying feature, and the Town Council as a body are to be congratulated upon the wisdom of the decision they have arrived at. It is by this time common knowledge that Mr Preece James has for years past made a special and exhaustive study of the South Sands Culvert, and we do not hesitate to say that no man is more qualified to undertake the important work of its re-construction and extension. It is a piece of work which has long demanded atten- tion the present outfall has for years been a danger and a menace to the town, not to men- tion the matter of its being a decided blot on the picturesque fairness of our South Beach. Now that the matter has been so satisfactorily advanced, we hope the Town Council will lose no more time in pushing it forward to finality, so that ere another summer season comes round the work may be completed, and a great boon conferred upon the town.
