BETHEL – The Board of Selectmen will decide Monday evening whether to approve a voter referendum on removing fluoride from the town’s water supply.
The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. Monday, April 13, at the Town Office.
The town has added fluoride to the water supply since 1970.
Bethel business owner Sarah Lane, who is not a resident of the town, asked selectmen to call a town vote on whether to stop using fluoride. She said there is evidence it is linked to brain damage.
Following an August 2014 public hearing on the issue, selectmen voted to postpone a special town meeting for September and schedule it for June 9, 2015, a day before the annual town meeting. They also scheduled a public hearing for May 11.
Other items on Monday’s agenda include:
* A glitch in pay for Public Works employees.
* Dedication of the Town Report.
* Bingham Forest cutting project.
* Recreation director job description.
* Approval of Western Hills Access Television bylaws.
* Lyme Disease Awareness Month request.
