Tarpon Officials Vote to Add Fluoride to City's Water

After nearly two hours of listening to impassioned pleas about the dental health of Tarpon residents, the City Commission unanimously voted Tuesday night (Apr. 17th) to add fluoride to the city's drinking water.

Commissioner Jeff Larsen, who asked for the discussion on fluoridation, said he came to his conclusion after asking if fluoride is "safe, effective and is it the city's role to do this?"
