The town of Walker is holding three public meetings next week to present the benefits of adding fluoride to the town’s water supply.

Town officials, along with representatives from the state Department of Health and Hospitals’ Oral Health Program, will explain why they think fluoridation is a safe, efficient and cost-effective way to prevent tooth decay for all ages.

The meetings will be held at 7 p.m. Jan. 11 and at 6 p.m. on both Jan. 12 and Jan. 13. All meetings will be in the Walker Municipal Building, 10136 Florida Blvd., Walker.
