At the March 6th City Council meeting, there was a Public Hearing held on a proposed ordinance to ban single-use carryout bags. The City Council wanted the public to have as much time as possible to review the updated draft ordinance prior to the second Public Hearing which will be held on March 20th.
Provided as links are two versions of the proposed ordinance, one that incorporates a fee for paper bags, and one that does not.
Council will discuss these options, and consider other modifications to the ordinance at its March 20th meeting. The public is invited and encouraged to participate in the public hearing, or to provide comments to the Council by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
