Culver Town Council Bringing Back Water Flouridation Issue

culver town hall

The Culver Town Council will be picking up where it left off on a matter of public health.

During their previous meeting, the Culver Town Council tabled a matter that members said needed additional discussion. The Town is in the process of designing a new water treatment facility. Engineers are at the point where a few decisions need to be made regarding chemical treatments for the water.

Flouride is commonly used in public water systems to help prevent dental ailments such as cavities. Opponents of fluoride say the substance is linked to disease. The engineer says using fluoride also corrodes pipes used in the treatment process.

The matter is expected to come back tonight for additional consideration.

The Town Council will also be considering a few items recommended from the Plan Commission. Papa’s Pizza and the Original Root Beer Stand are asking for rezoning to allow Papa’s Pizza to add seating and space onto their kitchen. The Root Beer Stand would be included for aesthetics on the zoning map.

A rezoning will also be needed for land planned as a housing development. That space could see homes developed in as little as 18 months.

Tonight’s meeting begins at 6:30 at Culver Town Hall.
