Fluoridation Five? (130)

After I published descriptions of four episodes of serious public engagement with fluoridation in Davis history,* Barbara King emailed me a copy of the City Council Minutes from February 21, 1991 that suggested a fifth episode.

I agree that these minutes (reproduced here) raise the possibility of a fifth episode. At the very least, they document a period of serious City government engagement.

I am not certain, though, that there was citizen engagement of a scope wide enough or on a scale large enough to earn this matter a place on our current list of four.

That determination would require further research. If anyone has information they would like to share on the scope and scale of citizen engagement in this 1991 matter, please send it to me and I will publish it.

*The four are chronicled in posts 120, 121, 124, 125 & 127.
