A Doncaster Rural Council Appointment.
The Rural Council on Saturday appointed Mr. H. Thirlwall, inspector nuisances for the southern area, as inspector of nuisances and surveyor for the parishes of Conisborough and Denaby.
It is a new appointment, decided upon to meet the growing urban needs of the area.
Four other candidates were interviewed, and Mr. Percy Ordsley, of Dewsbury who was defeated for new appointment by only one vote, was offered the position sanitary inspector for the southern portion of the rural district outside of Conisborough and Denaby.
He promised to consider the matter, and forward his decision to the Clerk. The salaries of the two appointments are nearly equal.
