(iv) Disabled sign at 10 Bron-y-Dre - Removed.
(v) Old Milk Factory Building - This has been headache for Council for a few years, now demolished and being developed.
(vi) Articles in the Journal - Response from Ian Lewis "As a general style of the Journal, if someone is a community/town or county councillor we always reference that when quoting. It's a fact, it's who they are within the community - no matter what the story - it's giving them their title/role. If the views of the council they belong to are being conveyed, then that is always made clear too. Having looked at the Christmas lights story, it simply quotes Robin as a Llangunnor community councillor. He still holds the title of councillor in or out of meetings. Every councillor is treated the same in terms of their titles / position within communities across the Journal circulation area." Members reminded that if making any comments in press that Clerk/Chair be informed.
(vii) Path between numbers 16 and 17 Glanffynnon - Streetscene awaiting to meet Housing (SL off on sick, request made for other officer to assist). Ian and myself called to see the pathway earlier and I will arrange for the area to be cleared of the moss and weedkiller put down asap.
(viii) Paths in Penymorfa - Update at meeting.
(ix) Llwybrau Llangynnwr - Meeting arranged for 23rd February.
(x) Mount Hill Rise - Meeting took place last week, Ms Wilkins indicated that there were plans to introduce a vertical measure (as indicated roughly on the attached plan) as part of the sustainable towns initiative for Llangunnor / Tre-gynwr. Ms Wilkins advised that the hump proposal was not taken forward on the grounds of an objection. I would be grateful for your advice as I am trying to establish if it is feasible or not to construct the vertical measure close to the junction opposite Mount Hill Rise.
(xi) Dead Animal - It had been reported that there was a dead fox in park, referred to Carmarthenshire County Council.
