With Nevada City getting closer to banning single use plastic bags, a council member has some pretty strong words for those who don’t support the idea. Speaking on KNCO’s ‘Fitzsimmons and Flores’ last Friday, Duane Strawser says he’s surprised that the county didn’t adopt some sort of plastic bag ordinance.
Strawser says he was particularly surprised that Supervisor Richard Anderson didn’t support an ordinance, because he represents Truckee, and Truckee already has a bag ban. Strawser also says that he doesn’t buy the idea of those who will avoid a 10-cent paper bag fee by shopping elsewhere.
Strawser says the council has been getting plenty of positive input from S-P-D and other stores. The Council has already had the first reading of a draft ordinance, and could adopt a bag ban at their next meeting.
