Another city in San Mateo County is following the County's lead and looking at a reusable bag ordinance.
The City of Belmont, CA, with a population of just over 25,000, will introduce and consider the ordinance at tonight's council meeting.
The ordinance, modeled after the County ordinance, would ban plastic bags in all retail stores and place a small charge on paper and reusable bags.
The meeting starts at 7:30 pm in the City Council Chambers (One Twin Pines Lane, Belmont, CA). See the agenda on the website (Item 10A).
