Fluoridation submissions

Fluoridation of water supplies inspired two submissions to the Central Otago long-term plan, from opposite viewpoints.

Noeline Gannaway, urged the Central Otago District Council to ''end fluoridation and supply pure water for the public good'' while Peter Herbison took the opposite view and said it was an opportune time to add fluoride to the drinking water as council water supplies were being upgraded.

Council staff will point out there are no fluoridated water supplies in Central Otago.

The council meets on Monday to consider 199 submissions to the long-term plan.
