Reusable Bag Ordinance Information Meeting
Wednesday, October 17, 2012
Arrillaga Family Recreation Center at 701 Laurel St. Menlo Park
On Oct. 23, the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors will vote on whether to adopt a reusable bag ordinance. If approved, the ordinance can then be adopted by 24 participating cities such as Menlo Park. The Menlo Park City Council is expected to vote on the ban in January.
The ban targets single-use bags, except those used by restaurants and for produce, and would implement a 10-cent fee for paper bags until Dec. 31, 2014, and then hike the fee to 25 cents per paper bag.
The first of two informational meetings about the ordinance starts at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 17. Another will be held in December.
