The commission returned to the discussion of whether to discontinue adding fluoride to the water supply. Trevor Witt and John Kollhoff said they have heard equal support and opposition to discontinuing the ordinance.

“I go back to my main point and rational for this is that, it’s not critical to the safety of the water supply, and the current practice makes things more dangerous for our staff,” Witt said.

“I believe every dentist with a 30-mile radius emailed or called us,” Kollhoff said. “I think really the concern is that it’s the people who are the most vulnerable are the young folks who might be more exposed to adverse dental conditions as a result of decreased fluoride.”

After a little more discussion, the commission directed staff to have the item appear at their next regular meeting.
