After months of deputations and debate, the issue of fluoridating Parry Sound’s drinking water will return to the council table next week.
During tonight’s council meeting, Parry Sound Coun. Paul Borneman requested the issue be put on the next agenda for discussion.
The room filled to capacity with supporters of the removal of fluoridation roared with applause at the move.
Because Peter Brown, town director of public works will be away at the next council meeting, on February 2, the matter will come back during the budget meeting on January 26.
Borneman was able to bring issue back to the table, as he was the on the prevailing side of the original vote regarding upgrades to the town’s water treatment plant.
The $250,000 upgrades to the plant are necessary to continue to safely distribute the chemical into the town’s drinking water.
