      Dr. Tom Largen and Jamie Behrends, Kala Clark and Wendy Moyer of Southwest Iowa Home Health appeared at the Hamburg City Council meeting in May to try to convince the Council to consider adding fluoride to the City’s water.
      The group explained that none of the cities in Fremont County currently have fluoride in their water other than a small amount that occurs naturally and is nowhere near the recommended amount for protection from tooth decay. Largen said they planned to go to every town in the County and ask them to consider adding fluoride to their water.
      Taking the group by surprise, the Council told them they were all for adding fluoride to Hamburg’s water...BUT.... The Council had done some research and discovered that fluoride has to be kept in a separate room with heat and venting at the water plant, and that room would have to be built on at an estimated cost of $30,000 that the City just didn’t have. The Council did say they would look into grants and if Largen and the ladies could find a grant to cover the cost of the additional room, they’d be happy to revisit the issue.
      I bet they will soon get a grant.
