cil held this day, there were present: -

Hon. Austin Winston,
Mr. J. H. C. Grell,
Mr. J. W. A. Osborne.
Absent:-Dr. R. F. Armour,
Hon A. D. Boyd,

Mr. Osberne, it was resolved that the
expenditure of the sum of $3862. 22 for
the Services of the Council during the
month of December, 1949 be sanctioned.
The Statement of the Town Fund for
the month of December was read showing
a credit balance of $2367. 12 on the 31st
December. [See Aovendixi
The Town Clerk's report was read.
The Town Clerk reported that Mr
James a lay reader in the Reformed Metho-
dist Church and the father of the pupil
who had been awarded the Roseau Town
Council Scholarship at the Convent, had
applied for his daughter to be allowed to
attend at the Wesley High School instead
of the Convent High School.
(Mr. Royer came in and took his seat.)
Mr. Osborne moved that the Scholarship
Regulation be amended to allow the
Scholarships to be awarded to any suitable
Secondary School in Roseau approved of
by the Roseau Town Council
Mr Winston seconded the motion.
Mr. Royer moves as an amendment
that the amendment to the Scholarship
Regulations be made to take effect from
the 1st January 1951.
Mr Grell seconded the amendment.
The amendment was put at the Vote and
members voted as follows:-
Ayes :-Mr, Grell and Mr, Royer.
Noes :-Mr. Winston and Osborne.
There being an equality of.votes the
Chairman gave his casting vote against the
amendment.
The original motion was then put to the
vote and passed.


The Chairman informed the Council that
some time early November last,, he
noticed that alterations were being made
to the property of Robert Garraway in
Victoria Street. He made inquiries at the
Office and found that no permission for
the alteration had been sought from the
Town Council. lie therefoire ordered the
work to stop. Subsequently he noticed
that not only had the work not stopped
but it had beer, completed, and a shop
opened therein by Mr Hugh Lawrence.
This was a serious matter. The Build-
ing By-Iaw was being flouted. Mr.
Karam had applied to erect a step in front
of his house in Bath Road which the Coun-
cil refused. He and Mr. Cecil Bellot told
him that they made a mistake in applying
to the loseau Town Council. In the case
of Mr. Bellot to re-erect his house in
Jewel Street on its original site. They
both held that had they erected without
applying nothing would have been done.
He was not on the Town Council at the
time Mr. Bellot referred to, and he was
not now going to allow the By-Laws of
the Council to be treated with contempt.
He had noticed that Mr. Patrick Charles
had erected a step in front of his house in
Cork Street without permission. This
meant that the Town Council was being
disregarded and this was a serious matter.
He had since received a letter from Mr.
Lawrence with regard to the Building
altered on Mr. Garraway's lot.
Mr. Osborne informed the Council that
he did not consider the alteration to the
building a breach of the By-Law.
The meeting was adjourned for the
Council to view the site.
On resumption all members present ex-
cept Mr Osborne. stated that they were of
the opinion that Mr. Lawrence had com-
mitted a breach of the Building By-Law.
A discussion followed and Mr. Osborne
left the meeting.
(Dr. Armour came in and took his seat.)
Mr. Grell moved as follows: -
Whereas Mr. Lawrence constructed a
New Building and whereas Mr. Lawrence
was not aware that an alteration required
permission of the Council.
And Whereas Mr. Lawrence refused to
obey the Chairman's order to stop build-
ing.
Be ItResolved that. this Council demand
an apology from Mr. Lawrence on his
having disobeyed the Chairman's orders.
The motion was put to the Vote and
carried.
Dr. Armour brought to the notice of
the Council that Mr. Patrick Charles had
been given permission to erect his build-
ing at the corner of Old and Cork Street
on condition that no fence was erected on
the Old Street side of his boundary, but
he noticed that he had started to erect a









245 OFFICIAL GAZETTE, MONDAY, OCTOBER 2, 1950.


fence and he should be stopped and re-
quested to remove the erected portion.
It was resolved that a notice be served
on Mr. Charles requesting him to remove
the fence and the step erected by him on
the Cork Street side of the house.
A letter dated 21st November, 1949
from the Secretary Dominica-Amateur
Sports Association was read applying to
the Council for the whole of the Nett
Gate Receipt of the recent football Match
against the Guadeloupeans to enable the
Association to pay expenses incurred in

expenses in sending a Team of Footballers
to Grenada to complete in the Windward
Islands Football Tournament
It was resolved that the application be
granted.

from the Secretary, Dominica Amateur
Sports Association applying to control
Windsor Park during the Cricket Season
January to July, 1950.
A letter dated 5th December, 1949 from
the Sports Master Grammar School apply-
ing for the exclusive use of Windsor Park
during the first four months of the year
1950
The reason for this request being -the
effect necessary repairs etc to the Cricket
Pitch, to erect necessary structures and to
carry-out sports practices in preparation
for the Inter-Schools Tournament.
That the Association also requested per-
mission to lay a concrete practice pitch in
the south-western corner of the Park.
The Sportsmaster Grammar School and
the Secretary Cricket Committee of the
Sports Association were present at the
request of the Chairman.
It was resolved that the Sportsmaster
Grammar School be granted the use of the
Park and that he should supply the Council
with a programme of Sports events for
which the Park was required by the School,
and that Windsor Park Committee should
be consulted with regard to the erection of
the Concrete Cr'cket Pitch.
With regard to the Resolution to fix the
rate of Municipal Tax for the current year
the Chairman informed the Council that at
a meeting of the Council held sometime
ago a Resolution was passed to increase
the rate from i v% to not less than 1 %
The matter was taken up with the Gov-
ernor, who agreed in Finance Committee
that the status quo of the Council be main-
tained until a report was sent in by the
Government Economic Adviser who was
due here next month or early March and
it was then agreed that the rate of Land
and House and Municipal Taxes should
not now be increased, and that Government
would continue to make advances to the
Council as was necessary until the finances
of the Council had been placed on a pro-
per footing.


Mr. Wins ton was present at the meeting.
Mr. Winston stated that he had given
this matter some thought and had not
decided what role to play in it.
Dr. Armour stated that he was in the
same position as Mr Winston.
(Mr Winston and Dr. Armour with the
permission of the Chairman retired from
the meeting )
Mr. Grell moved that the Chairman's
remarks. as 'o what took place in Finance
Committee should form part of the min-
utes.
Mr. Royer seconded the motion.
The motion was put to the Vote and
carried.
Mr. Royer moved as follows:-

ance) of all houses and lots of land in tlio

Mr. Grell seconded the motion.
The motion was put to the vote a"d
carried.
It was resolved that the meeting be
adjourned at 4.15 p.m. on the 25th ins ant.
Office of the Roseau Town Council,
25th January, 1950
At the adjourned meeting of the Roseau
Town Council held this day, there were
present:-
Hon C. A. H. Dupigny, Chairman,
Dr. R. F. Amour,
Lt Col E. R. Rowbotham,
Mr. L. w. C. Royer.
Absent:--Hon. A. D. Boyd,
Hor Austin Winston.
Mr. J. H. C. Grell.
Mr. J. W. A. Osborne.
Minutes of meetings held on the 19th
October, 16th November and 22nd Decem-
ber. 1949, were read and confirmed.
The Chairman stated that Col Row.
botham wai not present at the last meeting
and Dr. Armour came in late. Sometime
ago, to be exact 9th November, his atten-
tion was called to a building which was
being erected just opposite Peebles Park.
The centre.of that building was broken
down leaving a vacant space and a new
building was being erected from the
ground. It was a Sunday. During the
course of the week he went there, the








OFFICIAL GAZETTE, MONDAY, OCTOBER 2, 1950.


owner was not there and he told the
workmen to stop work vending decision
of the Council. No application had been
put in and no permission had been grant-
ed. Sometime after Mr. Lawrence came
to him and he told Mr. Lawrence to stop
work. He continued building: He went
there sometime afterwards and told the
workmen that they must stop working on
the building. The next thing he saw was
that the building was completed and a
shop opened there. At the last meeting
of the Town Council Wednesday last he
reported the matter to the Council Mr
Osborne there upon started a fierce attack
on him that he was attacking Mr. Law-
rence without any apparent cause and so
on.
A Resolution was moved by Mr. Grell
calling upon Mr. Lawrence to send in a
letter of apology. But the question of
that building in his opinion had not been
decided. He said at the meeting that he
considered this of a very, very seriouss
nature for the simple reason that it meant
the breaking down entirely of the Build-
ings By-Law of the Roseau Town Council.
He pointed out that just about that time
Mr. Karam applied for permission to
build a step to a building which he was
erecting in Bath Road and asked whether
he could put the step on the sidewalk.
He told him that it was not possible Mr.
Karam insisted and he then told him to
Send in his application It was re-
ferred to the Works and Streets Committee
and refused. Sometime afterwards in
discussion Mr. Karam and Cecil Bellot
said that they made a mistake in applying
- for permission of the Town Council
What they should have done was to build
and no one would make them demolish
anything. If thiswasallowed to continue,
it would be no use having By-Liiws of this
Council at all. Not only in these two
cases but lots of people were pointing to
Mr Shillingford's building that had been
put in defiance to the Town Council.
Now this was the position. What he
would like the Town Council to do was to
decide whether the By-Laws of the Town
Council were to be respected or whether
they were going to be flouted. And the
worst part of this sort of business was this:
A man who was certain that his application
was going to be granted would put in his
application but it was the people who felt
that their applications were doubtful and
likely to be refused who did not put in
their applications. A women had put in an
application to erect a building. When the
application came before the Council the
building had been completed. On that
occasion the Town Council decided that it
was due to ignorance and the Town Coun-
cil then passed a Resolution stating tha
the Sanitary Inspectors when going round
should check up and report to the Town


Clerk on all constructions. In connection
with the same building of Mr. Lawrence's.
when he saw the building being erected
he told Mr. Joseph, who was the acting
Town Clerk. to notify the person in charge
to stop work.
The matter was thrown open for discus-
sion.
Mr. Royer objected to this matter being
brought up again since it had been settled
at the last meeting by Mr. Lawrence being
asked to apologize:
I'he Chairman stated thnt he felt strong-
ly in this matter and did not think an
apology would meet the case. Unless
harsh measures were adopted the authori-
ty of the Council would not oe respected.
He wanted it placed on record that he
was opposed to the building been' allowed
to remain.
On motion of Mr. Royer, seconded
by Dr. Armour. it was resolved that a
notice be published in the press w rnirg
the public against infringement of the
Building By-Law.
Lt. Col Rowbotham voted against the
motion.
The Acting Chief Sanitary Inspectot's
and Acting Meat Inspector's reports for
month of December were read.
Terminal Reports of Town Council
Scholarship holders at the Convent High
and Grammar Schools were read.
It was resolved tat the Scholarships
which terminated at the end of the Schcol
year be extended for a further year.
A letter was read from Miss .ena St.
Cyr offering to sell to the Council a lot of
land owned by her on the River Embank-
ment.
It was resolved that Miss St. Cyr be in-
formed that the Council was not aware
that she owned any land on the River
Bank.
A letter dated 6th January, 1950 from
Mary O'Brien was read informing the
Council that it was now five years since
her house at the angle of Jewel Street
and Turkey. Lane was burnt down and
repeated applications either to build ,n
the lot or to place a house on it had been
refused.
That the Roseau Town Council under-
took to obtain a portion of adjoining lot
to enlargen hers and because she was a
poor widow nothing had been done.
The Chairi;an informed the Council
that L400 had been placed on the Colony's
Estimates to settle this matter. He
would suggest that pending the approval
of the Estimates that the Roseau Town
Council should act in the matter. The
question to be settled was how much was
to be paid for the land and an offer made
to the owner.
He there upon nominated the Director
of Works, Mr. Winston and Mr. Greil to
form a Committee to value the lots in
question
The Chairman informed the Council
that for past two months the Superinten-
dent Fire Brigade had been ailing and
Foreman Frank had been performing his
duties in conjunction with his own and
should be recompenbed.
It was resolved that the Superintendent
Fire lIrigade be granted sick leae similar

pose.

served if Mr. WORLLEDGE met the Legislature before examining

granting of Overtime Fees to Customs Officers that morning when
the Special Warrant was asked for and said that there must have
been some reason for the stoppage of Overtime Fees. He felt that
it was farcical to ask Finance Committee to approve of a Special
Warrant when the matter had not been referred to them before.
Mr. SHILLINGFORD wished to record his protest against the
manner in which it was done.
.Mr. AIRD said that Government should realise that the Cus-
toms had quite a lot of responsibility and asked that it should not

gust, 1949, from the Secretary of State stating the new rates for

under Head XVII Miscellaneous, Sub-head 3. Printing.

serious consideration to putting up its own Printing Department
and was supported by Mrs. NAPIER and Mr. C. A. H. DUPIGNY.

Office and Government could consider advancing the money.

Exports.

1948 and 1949 which had not been printed, and which would serve

poses and a start would be made in printing the latest monthly

tion :-

requested to give an undertaking to the Roseau Town
Council that it will permit the Council to increase its Re-
venue on the basis proposed by the Honourable C. A. H.
DUPIGNY at previous meetings of the Finance Committee
of the Legislative Council."
The Committee was opposed to the imposition of a Trade Tax
which would be tantamount to giving the Roseau Town Council a
blank check but were prepared to give assistance year by year







according to the Estimates and programme submitted by the
Council for the following year.
The Acting Treasurer suggested that funds could be provided
for the purpose by increasing Sur-tax by one-fifth which would
yield $12,000.

reducing the Roseau Town Council to a Government Department
and would mean a great difference in the Constitution of the
Roseau Town Council.

nection with the St. Aroment Road for the information of mem-
bers.
