It will be a busy Owen Sound council session on Monday evening.

There are three big issues on the agenda.

Owen Sound’s Operation’s Advisory Committee is recommending the City allow residents to vote on the issue of fluoridated drinking water.

Committee Chair, Bill Twaddle, says concerns haven’t been raised in roughly 17 years, and with a municipal election scheduled for October, it’s an good time for a review.

The first vote on fluoridation was held in 1965 and again in 1997, and both times voters agreed that Owen Sound should continue to treat the water.

City Council will vote tonight on the recommendation of putting the issue to a vote on the municipal ballot this fall…
