Later this week the Ukiah City Council will sit down to consider a plastic bag ban.
The meeting will be held at the Civic Center Council Chambers (300 Seminary Avenue, Ukiah, CA) on April 18, 2012 starting at 6 pm. The council will vote to certify the environmental report that studied the ordinance's potential impacts, followed by an introduction of the ordinance. See the full agenda on the website.
The bag ordinance proposes to ban plastic bags in all retail stores and require a ten cent charge per paper bag. Fort Bragg and unincorporated Mendocino County are moving forward with similar ordinances.
If you aren't able to attend the meeting and urge the Council's support, spend a few minutes here and send them an email letter. You can modify it as you like.
