Watertown -- A number of issues were brought up before the Watertown City Council Monday night. Everything from dogs to fluoride.
During last night's meeting, members of the council agreed to give the high bidder for a piece of property on W. Main St. one more week to finalize purchasing the land from the city. Charlene Williams was supposed to do so by last Friday, but did not. The property in question is the Ft. Drum Vehicle Storage warehouse, which the city seized due to back taxes. Williams, an associate of the former owners, was the high bidder at public auction. The council agreed to give her through November 27 to finalize the matter.
Also at last night's council meeting, several residents spoke out against fluoride being put in the city's water supply, citing health concerns. The city will take up the matter at their next work session.
Also, the issue of a dog park came up as well. Mayor Jeff Graham says he supports the idea, but someone would have to designate a location and tell the council how it would be paid for
