It’s back. (It never left.)

Thursday, June 18, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano

Taking full advantage of Public Utility Commission Chair Delia Garza’s maternity leave, Vice Chair Don Zimmerman moved forward with discussing the hazards of fluoride in Austin’s water supply at yesterday’s meeting. Perhaps looking to spare Austinites another long discussion on the topic, Zimmerman also posted a resolution on the City Council Message Board asking the city manager to “cease the addition of artificial fluoride, including hydrofluorosilicic acid, sodium fluoride, sodium fluorosilicate or any other methods of fluoridation, to the City of Austin’s water supply by December 1, 2015.” He will, of course, need co-sponsors in order to post the resolution to the regular Council agenda.
