Byron council to discuss fluoridation

BYRON Shire Council yesterday resolved to hold a non-public workshop within the next four weeks to discuss the issue of fluoridation of the shire's water supply.

Councillors, specialists and staff will attend to hear an hour-long pro-fluoride presentation and an hour-long anti-fluoride presentation followed by an hour for questions.

NSW Chief Medical Officer, Dr Kerry Chant has been invited to co-ordinate the pro-fluoride presentation and Jo Immig will co-ordinate the anti-fluoride presentation.

The information presented at the workshop will then be reported to the next ordinary meeting of council.

Byron is the last Rous Water member council not to fluoridate its drinking water and the decision to hold the workshop came in response to an urgency motion introduced by Deputy Mayor Dianne Woods.
