CORNING — Fluoridating Corning’s water supply is no longer an issue — at least for now.
Monday night the Corning City Council voted 7-2 to rescind its November 2006 vote to fluoridate the water. That means everything fluoride-related the council has worked on since then is null-and-void.
City Manager Mark Ryckman will no longer work on the issue until after the public votes on a referendum in this November’s general election. The referendum calls for a charter amendment — stripping the city council of their authority to adjust the levels of fluoride in the water.
