Let your flu­o­ride opin­ions be known

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

NORTH Bur­nett Mayor Don Waugh is urg­ing res­i­dents to make their views on flu­o­ride known to their coun­cil­lors.

Next year the coun­cil will vote to de­cide whether or not to cease the flu­o­ride pro­gram in North Bur­nett towns.

The town water sup­plies of Mon- to, Mun­dub­bera and Gayn­dah have been flu­o­ri­dated for a year af­ter anti-flu­o­ride protests fell on deaf ears.

NBRC’s last gen­eral meet­ing for 2012was in Biggen­den on Tues­day, but flu­o­ride wasn’t on the agenda.

Cr Waugh said the coun­cil had not been fully re­im­bursed from the State Government for money it out­laid for flu­o­ri­da­tion in­fra­struc­ture and couldn’t risk los­ing th­ese funds by an­nounc­ing a de­ci­sion.

NBRC chief ex­ec­u­tive Mark Pitt said if a de­ci­sion­was reached to re­move flu­o­ride, the coun­cil must have de­ter­mined it was in the best in­ter­ests of the com­mu­nity.
