176 MATTERS ARISING
The Clerk reported that he had received a copy of the presentation on the Website at the Joint meeting between Wrexham and the Town & Community Councils from Councillor Morris. The Council had twelve months to make the necessary arrangements and would report back at the June meeting. He also gave an update from Councillor Morris on the possible Prison which had received support from Wrexham Council. The consultation on the Power Station had been delayed as some landowners had refused access to the Company. This was now likely to be in early summer. After some discussion it was agreed that future meetings would be held on the second MONDAY of the month.
177 POLICING MATTERS
In the absence of PCSO Dobby the Clerk presented the report on crime in the area over the past month. There had been a total of 8 incidents including 2 thefts from vehicles. There were also 2 cases of Theft and Handling and 3 Criminal Damage. Members asked the Clerk to again raise the issue of Offroaders as this had been particularly bad last weekend.
178 FINANCIAL MATTERS, PRECEPT AND ACCOUNTS
The Clerk had no items to report.
Members said that there had been very little response to the leaflet drop. Councillor E Williams said he had had some ideas raised, one on the siting of the roundabout he would take up with Councillor Morris. The other worthy of consideration was the repositioning of the bus stop with ancillary works. Members agreed to raise this with Highways.
It was also agreed to purchase another Notice Board for the Pentre Dwr area.
