Hamilton defers decision on fluoridation
Hamilton defers decision on fluoridation of city’s water supply.
Hamilton City Council today decided 7 votes to 5 to defer a decision on whether or not to re-fluoridate the City’s water supply.
This follows a decision to remove it following a Tribunal in June and a subsequent referendum in October that saw 70% of voters asking for fluoride to be put back.
The decision to defer is to enable the Council give consideration to the High Court decision in Taranaki.
At this stage it is not clear when the decision will be reconsidered.
