BOYNE CITY — Attorneys for Boyne City have found that a split vote by the city commission last month to discontinue fluoridating the city’s municipal water supply was a legal action.

At its last meeting on May 27, the Boyne City City Commission voted unanimously to get an opinion from its attorneys about the legality of an action it took one meeting prior, on May 13 in which, by a 3-2 vote, it decided to no longer add fluoride to the city’s water system.

… In a memo dated June 6, James Murray and Rhonda Stowers, attorneys with the city’s law firm Plunkett and Cooney wrote, “We have concluded that the city acted in a legal manner with regard to this issue and the decision of the commission is valid.”
