THIS WEEK’S QUESTION

Officials are responding to a man they say built a retaining wall in the town water supply. Should the town control what residents on the pond do with their private land?

Yes, because Andover residents drink that water, so it needs to be protected.

Yes, because a property owner should know what limitations are on the property.

Yes, but for another reason.

No, because they’re paying taxes on the property and should be able to protect it.

No, because the Water Treatment Plant has its own retaining wall. There is no issue with a stone wall.

No, but for another reason.

Don’t know, or no opinion.
