To clarify and correct the Andover Village Board story that appeared in Tuesday's editions:

-- During the board's discussion about increasing water rates above the $45 per quarter minimum now in force, several figures were mentioned. The possible $5 per quarter increase reported in the story is but the highest of several discussed. Mayor David Crippen said the board will ask the Rural Water Association, of which the village is a member, to provide analysis the village will use to determine what if any increase will be proposed.

-- During the discussion of a hayrack, the board, in fact, did not agree to consider buying it.

-- The village building inspector is not authorized to impound animals or to enter homes believed to be in violation of ordinances setting the maximum number of pets, the mayor said.
