City Council Supports Bag Ban 8 - 0

The Bag Monster gears up to meet the City Council
Below is a snippet from today's Gazette-Times story, "Council sends bag ban to committee":

"After hearing nearly an hour of public testimony, the Corvallis City Council on Monday elected to send a proposed ban on single-use plastic bags to its Administrative Services Committee—although some proponents of the ban and at least one councilor said it was a shame the council couldn’t enact the measure on the spot.

The ordinance, which is the brainchild of the Sierra Club’s Marys Peak Group, brought a few dozen people to the noon meeting, and about 10 spoke in front of the council. Testimony was heavily in support of the ordinance with a few opposed.

The council unanimously decided to move the proposed ban to the Administrative Services Committee."

Sounds like our ordinance is moving forward!
