No fluoride for city


Tauranga City Council has no plans to revisit the contentious issue of fluoridating the city's water supply.

Fluoride was taken out of Tauranga's water supply in 1992 after a referendum where more than half of the city's residents voted against the chemical that is back in the news elsewhere in New Zealand.

Council acting communications manager Frank Begley said the status quo was maintained in two reviews in 1995 and 2004.
