What the city saves on fluoride...it passes back to the community.
In February of 2011, Council made the controversial decision to no longer add fluoride to the city's water.
Now a city committee is recommending the $750,000 savingsl be directed to two organizations that work directly with dental health for children of low income families.
Alderman Druh Farrell who led the anti-fluoride charge says the funding would be funnelled to two groups, CUPS (Calgary Urban Project Society) and the Alex Community Health Centre.
Farrell says thousands of kids would benefit from this decision.
