The Kalama City Council on Wednesday will consider letting voters decide whether to continue adding fluoride in the town’s drinking water.

Kalama has received nationwide and even worldwide attention since city leaders began debating the mayor’s proposal to eliminate fluoride.

Kalama has fluoridated its water for about 50 years. Fluoride advocates say it safely reduces tooth decay, while opponents worry that it may have negative health impacts and that consumers should decide whether to continue its use.

The meeting take place at 7 p.m. in Kalama City Hall, located at 320 N. First St.
