Poland Spring flyers contain wrong polling hours |

Poland Spring flyers contain wrong polling hours |

WELLS — The town scrambled Oct. 27 to inform residents of the correct polling hours for the Nov. 3 vote, after two Poland Spring mailers gave the wrong time.

Polls will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at Wells High School, according to town officials

Poland Spring/NESTLE are advocating that the town pass and ordinance that would enact regulations on large scale water withdrawal.

The Poland Spring mailer advocated that residents pass an ordinance that would enact regulations on large-scale water extraction operations.

It stated the polls opened earlier and closed earlier than the correct time frame.

Opponents of the ordinance claim, if enacted, the change would open the town to large-scale water withdrawal operations like that of Poland Spring.

Poland Spring/NESTLE is, of course, saying it was an honest mistake.

Why is it that citizens are not fired up about their water supplies? Don't people know that this is a life and death issue? We can't live even if its scraping by survival without clean water and plenty of it.

My issue stands with state governments. Because of the greed factor, they will never enforce their eminent domain laws which they could. States have all the powers they need to over take land and land rights. However, I'm not of course taking into consideration the one or more corrupted politicians in the Federal govt. who would take money to negate such an action. This is ultimately where the problems always lie. Filthy lucre. I don't live in Fryburg Maine, but I don't see the citizens protesting in the streets demanding that Poland Spring leave their town??
