Pomps Pond closing on Aug 12 is a typical example of dysfunctional government. They know we, the citizens of Andover, want to be able to swim Memorial Day to Labor Day. But it is inconvenient for them to hire lifeguards that can do that?
I can not believe that certified lifeguards are not available and willing to take that job with the proviso that they work the full summer. Maybe they are too lazy to interview or advertise for lifeguards?
Next year, demand that any lifeguard work the full summer. If a private business was run this way, it would be out of business in a year.
