To the editor:
Citizens For Safe Water (CFSW) members are circulating two petitions to present to the Greater Pine Island Water Assn. Inc.. One is to force a vote by voting members of the association, to let the members decide if they want fluoride added to the drinking water or to allow the board of directors to continue with their plan.
The second is to call for a change to the by-laws limiting the powers of the board to add some chemicals to the drinking water.
The locations that have petitions to sign are as follows; Capt'n Con's Fish House in Bokeelia; The Grab Bag in Bokeelia; Jug Creek Marina in Bokeelia; Dr. Watson's Liquor Store at the Winn-Dixie Plaza; Farm and Garden on Stringfellow Road just south of Winn-Dixie plaza; Salon L.A. in Saint James City across next to Bob and Annie's Boat Yard and St. James General Store.
Remember, you must be a voting member (water bill in your name) and only one signer per household.
We also want to be sure to encourage everyone to attend the quarterly board meeting of the GPIWA on Sept. 25, 2012 at 3 p.m. at the GPIWA office building on Pine Island Road.
We are looking for a Matlacha business that will allow us to leave petitions to be signed at their location.
