Voters should decide whether the county adds fluoride to its water, Pinellas County Commissioner Neil Brickfield suggested Tuesday.
Brickfield raised the topic toward the end of the commission meeting, pointing out that the possibility of a referendum came up last year after the commission's 4-3 vote to take fluoride out of the water.
The commission, however, wouldn't even vote on whether to hold a public vote.
Commissioner Ken Welch suggested Brickfield make a motion to put a referendum proposal on a future agenda so the commission could have a discussion about it. When Brickfield made such a motion, it died for lack of a second.
