City Council tonight got an earful from those wanting an end to the flouridation of drinking water... Speakers made an appeal based on studies they sight showing the chemical to be an industrial by-product put in water for dental reasons, but actually toxic to humans.
Council agreed to discuss the issue with the water superintendent next week.
Lawmakers also heard from supporters of a dog park in the city. Advocate Scott Gates made the pitch for designation of a site. He also took aim at the city dog ordinance which I think has been effective. I am not against a dog park, but someone has to designate a location and tell Council how it will be paid for.
Lawmakers extended by a week the time for buyers of a warehouse to close on the property. The failure to close on Friday was not met, but while granting a brief reprieve, Council seemed firm in not extending it further.
Council also reappointed the chair of the Library Board and approved cost overruns for the Clinton Street project.
There was also a presentation from a company from skirts the domestic prescription drug cartel in favor of off shore pharmacies. Council requested further information.
