Wichita's City Council will make a decision that could bring an end to an issue that's been debated for decades.

City Council members will either make a decision about adding fluoride to the city's water supply - or they'll vote to put it on a ballot and let voter's decide.

People for water fluoridation say it would increase dental health, while opponents believe there could be health risks involved.

If Wichita did add fluoride to the water, city leaders say it would add about an extra nine cents per month to the average water bill.

KAKE's Lily Wu will be at the meeting and will have the latest.
