Plastic Bag ordinance going into effect
Posted Date: 3/5/2015

The Plastic Bag ordinance was adopted on September 9, 2014 and becomes effective on March 10, 2015. While public notice of the ordinance was provided, this notice to individual businesses was not sent shortly after the ordinance was adopted as originally planned. Therefore the ordinance will not be enforced until July 15, 2015 to allow sufficient time for businesses to become familiar with the new regulations and transition to the recycled carryout bags and reusable bags.
