MOUNT HUXT ROAD DISTRICT. (Before Mr. F. Guinness, Judge.) The Assessment Court for the above district was held at the Road Board office, Methvon, yesterday. Only one objection had been lodged, and the objector did not appear. The valuation list was then passed and signed by the Judge. WAKANUI ROAD DISTRICT. (Before Mr. F. Guinness, Judge.) The Wakanui Assessment Court was held in the Town Hall oil Thursday last, the only persons who attended being Mr. F. G. P. Leach, the Valuator, and Mr. C. C. Fooks, who appeared to oppose on behalf of the Road Board. Mr. Leach considered that as his contract for the compilation of the rolls had been made with the County Council, the Court could not recognise any objections on the part of an inferior body. The Magistrate pointed out to Mr. Loach that under clause 14 of the Rating Act, the Road Board, by their Chairman or Clerk, could object to the roll, and that Mr. Fooks was the proper individual to oppose. Mr. Fooks then pointed out a number of errors in the roll, and Mr. Leach asked for permission to correct them. After discussion, the roll was ordered to be corrected, and to be placed in the hands of the Board, and a copy of it lodged with the County Council by March 11th, to be then open for the inspection of the ratepayers till March 25, and the Assessment Court to be held on April 3rd.
