Do you think the restaurants that had to close because of the water main break should be compensated?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on January 22, 2005
“Well, I think it’s bad luck. Unfortunately it’s not a water law issue, so I don’t think the city can be held responsible.”
“They should definitely get some kind of compensation. It’s not their fault that it broke, so they should get something.”
“Yes. I think that they should probably be compensated for the business that they lost that day.”
“No. Although the city may be responsible, it is just the cost of doing business. Things happen.”
