Accreditation The Redcar and Saltburn-by-the-Sea Gazette 05/06/1868.


            The monthly (adjourned) meeting of the Redcar Local Board was held yesterday afternoon (04/06), at the offices, Redcar. Present: Messrs J. Johnson (chairman), T. Blatherwick, H. Moore, E. W. Lennard, J. Harrison, J. G. Thompson, (clerk), and M. Crabtree (surveyor.) The minutes of the last monthly meeting, were red and confirmed. On the motion of Mr Lennard the Clerk was instructed to prepare an estimate for a general district rate. The surveyor reported that the Sanitary Committee had not yet inspected the nuisance said to exist upon Mr  Duck’s property in High Street, consequently, there was no report. The tender of Mr T. D. Guy, to paint the outside of the offices, four £3.10 shillings was accepted. Mr Lennard called attention to the desirability of having the streets watered during the summer, but found no support, therefore the matter fell through. Plans for converting the old Quaker’s Chapel into a cottage were submitted and withdrawn for an alteration in the Windows to be made. A special meeting of the board was next held, and on the motion of Mr Lennard, seconded by Mr Blatherwick, a special district rate of eight pence in the pound, payable on Monday next, was passed. This finished the business.
